Dont use raid its not so great that its hyped up to be.
You just dont need it, trust me. If you are affraid of losing data on one harddrive, just copy and paste the folder/file to the other harddrive.
You can always make another copy of the Program or Movie for example on the other harddrive just copy and paste and tada your done..
Sigh ... I think that instead of telling people what they should do, you should list the positves and negatives for each suggestion, especially when you don't know what the person is going to be doing with it, at home or not. If the person is dealing with critical data, which often the person does not say what they are doing exactly. For example, if a person was using the computer to record an interview (some people do work at home and often people don't say where the computer is) and it would be impossible to redo the interview, then having good data protection is critical.
RAID is a very good thing, if you need it, and nothing else will replace it. The thing is that many people don't really need it so that it is best to not bother with it, but some people should use it and don't. Many people don't back up their data either and some of the data is important. While it is true that some people hype RAID, the simple fact is that many people use and have protected their data against disk failures and downtime.
Manually copying files is fine as long as the data does not change all that often and you can afford to lose the data between copies. Also, if you copy the data to one location, it is possible that a failure could occur at that point in time, causing a loss of data. It is best to have multiple locations to copy the data to.
