I would like to place the backup on a new partition, but I can't seem to figure out how to change by backup location.

The backup path is hardcoded so once it's done you can move manually to a new location.

Test on my machine. Able to back up on different drive 

Run the management server configuration wizard

Change the server data folder path to  to any drive you like

Complete the configuration

the path would have changed on the localhost backup properties page 

P.S: it would change the entire data Folder, not just backup folder
