Backup data

Hi

Is it possible to backup Data to a standard CD/DVD not Re-Writable using vba. I am using Access 2013.
or is it recommended to use a third party backup utility.

You can use command line and some third party burning software.
CommandBurner, for example:

I don't like RW disks. After 2-3 rewrites you can't be sure in it.
I prefer to use (in decreasing order) network storage, other computer, addiitional hdd in same computer.  
It depends on your data. Do you need history?  How long should take restore?

I don't like either. I do the same as your last response. I have This person with one PC and no additional
HDD, currently using USB stick. Worried of HDD failure and Sticks have been known to fail. This guy works from home so trying to protect his data the best I can.
Thank you for your help Appreciated
