From what I've read, there was a Backup To File option at one point - that doesn't seem to appear in the version I have though.

Hit the "Tools" menu at the top, then "Configure Devices" then "New 
Removable Backup-To-Disk Folder".  At least that's the option in 2010R2, 
i recently used removable backup to disk folders on Backup Exec 10, and 
it was a similar process.
