This error happens when

There is no such directory
There is not enough space on drive
There is not enough permissions on destination drive

So try to create backup on the drive where you have full permission.

Hope this will solve your issue
I think that folder refers to your local machine where SQL server doesn't have access .  Whatever the path is make sure it exists on the SQL server machine.

I have set a folder with full access permission but I am still getting an error.
see screen shot
Also if you look  at the screen shot, I don't quite get why the first backup is working when I run it (c:\Users\All Users\Poolware 150828.bak) &
 the second one at the same location get the error that you see on the screen shot
same directory

Remove those 2 and ADD a new location that you will pick from the window.  Give a file name to the backup file and then in the Options choose "Overwrite all existing backup sets".  instead of Append...

This is due the back up file at the destination file is read only.

So at the next time when the back up is taken again it is going to delete the old file with new one which is not happening.
