SMO backup error

I am using 10.2 version. and trying to back my remote SQL server.
How ever i get following error.

I read somewhere that it is due to SMO.
I did unchecked “use SMO for remote backup”, this resolve this issue but someone told it is not good to turn it off.

How do i resolve this? How do i make backup with SMO keeping on.
Please let me know.



SQLBackupAndFTP version 10 is very old version and no longer supported. Could you please install the latest version of SQLBackupAndFTP version: 11.6.3 and check if it resolves the issue. You can download it at
