That's if drive failure is your only concern. If you're looking to recover deleted files or recover files after they're clobbered by a virus, or lose data after an electrical problem or a flood or fire or something catastrophic, mirroring doesn't help.

Exactly. Raid levels greater than zero protect against only one kind of issue, drive failure. It does nothing to protect against any other kind of failure and is no substitute for a backup.

Because drives fail, it's still a good idea. Just don't let it give you too high a comfort level.
