This is not addressing your stated question - why do you want a separate Backup of the iBank data? It is a separate item in your SuperDuper files. In can be recovered/ restored from TM.

If at some future date you wish to delete all copies of any old file (iBank data, a book, anything) from TM that is very straight forward.

Automator can easily backup any single file to any drive on your PC. You could also plug a USB stick in and copy the iBank data to that stick for a backup also.
