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?
