SQL Server 2012.
I created a backup device (under Server Objects).
Now working OK: radio button now activated.
Moral of the story: you have to have one backup device at least.

I cannot reproduce the issue in my test environment(SQL Server 2012).
When backup database to disk, the default path is C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Backup. If there is backup device on this server, I can choose backup device option during backup. Please verify that you had create the backup device on the server successfully.
