I currently open Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express, rightClick on the database I want to backup, and leftClick TASKS/BACKUP.

How can I get this to automatically run on my "Microsoft SQL Server 2005 EXPRESS" at 2pm daily ?

Attached are the steps and screenshots I did (on two different machines, both running their own MSSQL 2005 Express) based on http://www.mssqltips.com/tip.asp?tip=1174, I waited for the task to finish, but nothing except my Backup.sql appeared in C:\Backup after doing a refresh.

1. How can I see what errored in the "Scheduled Task" ?
2. How can I get this to work ?

You configured LAPTOPSDL\laptop user to configure Scheduled backups to run.

Does that user is part of Sysadmin and database admin privileges so that backup task can run successfully.

Let me ask the same question I asked in your duplicated question here:

Assuming that LAPTOPSDL is local, what happens when you run the following from the command line:
sqlcmd -S LAPTOPSDL -E -i C:\backup\backup.sql
