Yes I left out some details. This RAID-0 is used for multiple purposes, some of them require high data throughput. All but media files are backed up indeed. This is a home setup, no dedicated servers.
No RAID is a replacement for backup, RAID-5 is not an exemption.

Never said it was, but, raid (With redundancy, of course) does save you from sitting through long nights slowing recopying all your disks at two megabytes per second because you think one of your HDDs may be failing in the majority of cases.
