AD Backup Replication issue or not?

I can not figure out if I have an AD backup problem or not. Can somebody help me determine if the output from the following command

repadmin /showbackup

looks all right or not. The "Org.Time/Date" is what concerns me because it says 2013-07-11 in that column. However when I force backup replications using

repadmin /syncall /APeD

all looks fine. The AD Replication Status Tool reports no issues either. I have also attached a screen shot of an error message in event viewer saying that backups aren't occurring....

What am I missing here? That date bothers me......


Output from commands above

C:\Windows\system32>repadmin /syncall /APeD
Syncing all NC's held on DC01.

I thought by having multiple domain controllers and replication working between the domain controllers, a backup of a domain controller was moot and unnecessary. Apparently, my line of thought was wrong?

Hey Amit, thanks for the advice. What is the recycle bin option you're referencing? Don't know anything about that.

Why is the timestamp July 11, 2013 for the repadmin /showbackup though?
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Recycle Bin In AD is similar to  your recycle bin in your local machine. Here your ID or objects are moved to recycle bin and help you to restore to old state. Which was earlier not available.
