What is the chance of a drive really failing? I dont really think i need a back up since i wont have too much data too begin with.
I don't think you understand the Concept here. With any RAID you need At least two Drives. You cannot put the OS on one drive, the Data for everything including the OS is split between two drivesor more.
I don't know statistics on what drive failure is, but you should have back ups especially with RAID 0 because if one drive fails, you cannot recover the information on them. Therefore All Data including the OS is totally lost.
