I wouldn't bother with the complexities of RAID. I would make scheduled Macrium Reflect backups to an internal or external permanently connected external drive and manual backups to another external drive stored separately from the PC. That way you are protected against a single backup  drive failure or serious malware attack affecting all drives. Uses the Reflect Verify feature and viBoot to check you can boot the backup image.
