I ran into this exact problem and was helpless with nothing much to do other than deleting them and receating them. One other problem that I faced was changing the running user for backup export. I am seeing this error : 

"The scheduled weekly export ran as the running user our user. The following error occurred: The user account that runs the weekly export is inactive.  To fix this problem you can either: 1) Set this user to be active. 2) Change the running user on the job."

Now, option 1 is out of question but not able to find a way to perform the second action. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Mandeep

Okay. Within minutes, I bumped into the solution. The solution is to go to the "Scheduled Jobs" menu under setup->Administration Setup->Monitoring and just delete the "Data Export" job there. You will see that the next scheduled export date has disappeared. You are now free to schedule another export with an active account.

Thanks,
