 People get busy with life (kids etc), and most folks do not religiously back up their systems. A RAID0 or RAID5 setup can be seen as a constant short-term backup. It can mean that you don't lose the photos you just took yesterday or 4 hours ago.


Repeat after me: RAID is not backup. RAID is not backup!

RAID can provide some protection against drive failure. In most cases, it provides no protection against accidental deletions, data loss due to malware etc.

Drive failure is exceedingly rare these days, unless of course you have racks full of hundreds of spinners in which case RAID is highly appropriate.
