In the context in which I suspect you are using the term "backup", you mean a complete copy of your data located at your girlfriend's house on the other side of town.  That way if the house burns down or poltergeists invade the CPU your data is elsewhere.    Or at least put it in a desk drawer and not currently connected to your computer.

I have a couple of the G-Tech units and think they're fine, but G-Tech's email response to questions sux.

RAID levels is complex enough to be beyond my capacity to summarize in a forum.  Wiki has a much better description than I could give anyway.  RAID will probably not do what you are looking for by itself, but can certainly provide substantial benefits.

One day long ago, a sorcerer and a warrior did battle, as such things were commonplace in that age. Sometimes the sorcerer won, and the sum value of human abilities was improved some trifling amount. Sometimes the warrior won, and again the human race improved by some insignificant amount, for a sorcerer who can't defeat one miserable warrior is a poor sorcerer indeed.
