I created a backup schedule using SBS2008 built-in backup. I have it scheduled to backup every night at 10PM however I would like to initiate a backup before then since it's now only 11AM, is there a way I can initiate the schedule manually? I know one option is to schedule for 11:30AM then change  it back but my specific question is, is there a way to initiate a scheduled backup manually.

Just go to scheduler, right click the backup item and 'run now'? Works for me !
You can also copy / paste the scheduled item , change it's schedule to manul and you then have it as a manual job whcih can be modified without affecting the scheduled job.

Editing the task and doing a manual backup creates a diiferent backup and overwrites existing incrementals.
Better to do it from the SBS console. Go to the backup 'page' highlight the backup and in the right hand column click "run backup now". This just adds another incremental backup.

you can either start the scheduled task (task scheduler>Microsoft>Backup>microsoft-windows-windowsbackup)
or you can use the command line 'wbadmin start backup'

going with this answer even though it was second, reason is this was more specific and the way I schedule the backup to run once.
