You are absolutely right. SW Raid prevents losing data in case 

of hardware (Promise / mainboard) defect. One can take the hdd 

out and drop it in another machine to pull them out. 

Otherwise you have to dig in EBay for a similar device to start

But: After all thinking about how's if's and the like I admit that 

a good additional backup strategie lets admin sleep better.
