One nice part of having a decent NAS, network recycle bin! Anything that gets deleted, I have retained for 14 days, then it actually deletes it.

So in some cases, RAID can be considered a backup to a certain extent. Obviously it won't save you from acts of god, power surges, or some other odd hardware failure, but largely it'll keep your data safe.
