Is there any way to force run a backup when I have the run once a day setting enabled?

You can always run a manual backup by selecting the Backup Definition File tab, right-clicking the appropriate file name, and selecting Run Now.

I have no experience with powershell scripts.  Perhaps others willbe along with advice on that.

The "Run Once" check is always going to run if you call that script and therefore always exit if a backup has already run.  If you want to be able to override that behavior and need the full script to run rather than just the backup, then you'd probably want to have another PowerShell script that is identical except for not having that Run Once Per Day option enabled.  If you don't need anything within the script to run beyond the backup, then capair's method would be fine.
