You'll have to execute SBackup with root privileges. From command line you can do this by typing 'sudo ...'. When launching SBackup from menu please choose 'Applications -> System tools -> ...' to start it as root user (enables scheduled backups). Please also have a look at https://answers.launchpad.net/sbackup/+faq/1322

Thank you for using SBackup.
