Ok, here's the problem. The now unlock your device.... is telling you the backup is done, not that you have to use a screen password. I got the same thing trying to do it in recovery and a 0 byte backup file. I could backup when normally booted. But that's not going to help you with the non-functional screen. Let me play around with it a little more and see if I can figure it out.
Edit, let's backup a little bit. Do you have a custom recovery or are you on stock? If it's custom which one?
Edit, sorry man, the best I can do is use adb pull. But that requires you to know specifically where and what the file name is. And you have to do that for every file you want. Seems adb backup only works if you're booted normally and not in recovery.

I'm on cwm recovery.
I tried adb pull to copy all the stuff on my phone using the command "adb pull /" but the files copied did not include my pics or any personal media etc.
What would be the exact location of my pics inside the phone?? Also maybe it's not working because the sdcard is not mounted?
