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 
just sitting 
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 
added to 
the server. Wish they did it for the Mac!

Lightning fast and more efficient in terms of disc space use but more expensive.
