The command line appears to work:

awilliam@bestia:~> /usr/lib/evolution/evolution-backup --
backup  evolution-backup-20200214.tar.gz
evolution-backup-Message: evolution --quit
evolution-backup-Message: rm /home/awilliam/.local/share/evolution/.running
rm: cannot remove '/home/awilliam/.local/share/evolution/.running': No such 
file or directory
evolution-backup-Message: dconf dump /org/gnome/evolution-data-server/ 
evolution-backup-Message: dconf dump /org/gnome/evolution/ 
evolution-backup-Message: cd /home/awilliam && tar chf - .local/share/evolution 
.config/evolution evolution.dir | gzip > 'evolution-backup-20200214.tar.gz'
evolution-backup-Message: rm /home/awilliam/evolution.dir
awilliam@bestia:~> ls -l evolution-backup-20200214.tar.gz
