Use the below script

DECLARE @Path NVARCHAR(1000), @FileName NVARCHAR(255), @FullPath NVARCHAR(1255)
SET @Path = '\\db1\E$\SQLServer\2008\Backups\'
SET @FileName = 'Express_' + REPLACE(CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), GETDATE(), 101), '/', '') + '.bak'
SET @FullPath = @Path + @FileName

BACKUP DATABASE Express
TO DISK = @FullPath
WITH INIT

SQL EXPRESS edition does not have SQL Agent; therefore, you cannot schedule it that way. Now you, could create a .SQL file containing the code above that you run through SQLCMD.exe. You can try to schedule that using Windows Scheduled Tasks.
