How to I get around entering a password in order to schedule a backup?  I don't know the password or where to find it.

You can't "get around" it.  Backups require administrative credentials in order to run, and in order to run scheduled backups in the background, those credentials need to be stored, so you need to provide the username and password of any administrative user on the PC under which you want scheduled backups to run.  It can be your own regular Windows username and password if your regular account is an administrator, although note that if you use that, any time you change your password, you'll need to update Reflect with the new password.  For this reason, some people prefer to create another admin account with a static password dedicated specifically toperforming backups.
