All save games must have a Backup folder, without them they wouldn't even appear in the Load Game list. Are you sure you're looking in the correct place? It's at: Databases -> DatabaseName -> SaveGames -> SaveGameName -> Backup. It's physically not possible for you to attempt to run a save game if this folder is not present.
You can also apply the Backup by using the Game Recovery button on the Load Game menu.
