When Composite C1 is running on an SQL Server, can I still use XmlBasedSiteBackup to backup?

After backing up the database, can I use XmlBasedSiteBackup to backup the entire website folder? http://docs.composite.net/Packages/CompositeC1Tools/CompositeToolsXmlBasedSiteBackup says: Important! If your website is SQL-based, you should not use this tool.

The reason is I want to avoid RDP into the server.

You can back up the "website folder" with XmlBasedSiteBackup  (as long as you are aware that with SQL-based websites a "website  folder" is not the entire website  :)   )

The warning targets those people who might - unwittingly - try and back up the "entire website" (SQL-based).

Thanks for the clarification.
