I removed TFS form my server today and detached al databased starting with ""Tfs" as in 'TfsWorkItemTracking".

Now I am getting the following warning.

Any ideas how to stop it?

Open SQL Server Management Studio and connect to the server.
Expand the SQL Server Agent
Expand Jobs.
You'll probably find the backup task in there and will be able to remove it.

You will find around seven SQL server jobs related to TFS under SQL server Agent,all should begin with TFS , if SQL server is no longer needed on this server you can uninstall it, if you do need SQL just delete all the jobs under SQL server agent that match this criteria.
