Can a Back-Up disc be virus infected and reinfect

Can a virus be passed into a Back-Up disc already holding Data and then re-infect a PC. I had a virus which was thought to have been repaired. Before realising the repair was unsuccessful I backed up further data on to an existing backed-up disc. My PC is now cleaned but dare I use my Back-Up disc now and could the earlier data plus the additional data be compromised. The disc holds information important to me. Any advice would be appreciated. Buckland

Scan the disc with your anti virus software.
