Yes but single session: Because data cannot be added to the disc this option may waste space on the chosen media. Okay to use for one-off backups.

Hard Disk Space Requirements:

The AISBackup integrated disc writer and third party disc writers need to write the backup to hard disk first, therefore it is recommended that at least the capacity of the blank media is available on the hard disk, this can be as much as 4.7GB for a DVD backup.
