I got it working, thanks Kev. Turns out I must run this on the SharePoint server, as it calls stsadm which I wasn’t aware of. I was looking for a powershell remote backup solution where I could run this from
anywhere and backup my site collection.
Does anyone know whether a powershell solution that might use WebDAV or other protocol to provide this solution?

Hi Kev, thanks for the information. I am receiving the following error after configuring the XML file and wondering whether I need to edit the .ps1 file, based on the error below:
PS C:\Windows\system32> C:\Users\ryanph.REDMOND\Documents\Software\SharePoint\spbackup1.2\spbackup.ps1 need parameter Configurationfile (e.g. "c:\SPBackup\SPBackup.xml")
At C:\Users\ryanph.REDMOND\Documents\Software\SharePoint\spbackup1.2\spbackup.ps1:16 char:41
