I understand that existing QTP 11 scripts are converting as they are run or opened in UFT, and are then UFT 12.1 scripts. Do you have any knowledge base documentation on a utility to backup and convert all existing QTP automation at one time, and how to estimate how long that will take? Thanks!

There is no need to run a tool to upgrade scripts from QTP 11 to UFT as stated in HP document KM00316304. As you have stated UFT will upgrade the script when it is loaded and saved again. The scripts are compatible as stated in KM00208465 and forcing upgrade is not required. Older versions of QTP (9.x and older) required the HP Asset Upgrade Tool and the HP document KM896902 give more details on this tool.
If you want to push the upgrade to all of the tests, then a custom VBScript to force the upgrade process have to be made. I have attached HP Document KM200021 as reference how to do the upgrade that was used for QTP 8.2 to 9.0.
Below is listed document attached reference documents.
