If you start KRunner (alt-F2, or from a right-click on the desktop) and type 
in "akonadi" the config utility will be one of the options offered.  The tray 
utility is not intended to be the normal way of accessing it, and you are not 
going to need it regularly.  Also, as you will read on the UserBase page, that 
backup facility is not the whole solution to your needs.  You must back up the 
"real data" whereas that backs up the cached data.
