Safestrap is the recovery system that lets Bionic users utilize an alternate recovery firmware to install alternate ROMs. That's what this entire thread is about.
It almost sounds like you trying to make your backup through ROM Manager. ROM Manager looks for Clockwork Recovery (that gets installed with Bionic Bootstrap and not Safestrap). Safestrap is an entirely different system that ROM Manager won't recognize.
Make sure you reboot your phone and manually enter into Safestrap so that you can make a backup. It will work properly that way.
