You could do that, but since a flash drive (or even an external USB hard drive) is much easier to write to than CD/DVD, wiping isn't necessary so this would be more complicated than it needs to be. But if you did have two USB drives, you could move your original data folder to one, say F: and back the folder up to another, say E:. If they were both Flash drives, you could disconnect F when you are away from the PC and keep it on your person--it's popular to attach these to keychains--at all times.
But I am wondering if I would need two external hard drives, to do alternate backups? Back up with the first on a Monday night and backup with the second on the Tuesday night. Then, wipe the first on the Tuesday night and use it for the Wednesday night back up? I used to do that with CD-RW disks.

So you see there are lots of options, but the portability and ease of use of of USB Flash drives makes them much more ideal, IMHO
