But note that RAID is not a substitute for backup. It does not let you 
recover an older version of a modified file, nor a file deleted by 
accident. You need backups even if you setup RAID 1.

It seems the tools you've read about are a bit outdated. Research a 
bit about LVM before you setup RAID in your machine.
