For those on a tight budget may I suggest an alternative to Raid backup.
There is an excellent piece of software called 2nd Copy for Windows. With this
you can point it at a source drive and a destination drive and then let it do
its thing. At
regular intervals, set by you, it will scan the source drive and any changes
will be copied to
the destination drive which can be USB, FireWire or a NAS drive. It has many
options to give you plenty of options to play with. You can even evaluate it
free of charge,
take a look here:
We use it at work to provide backups and it is a really useful bit of software
there in the background creating 2nd copies. We even have a copy on our server
wakes up in the early hours of the morning and makes copies of any new files
the server. Wish they did it for the Mac!

very cost effective. My Granite Digital is RAID5, array each on its own SATA
Lightning fast and more efficient in terms of disc space use but more expensive.
