I think you are very lucky :)
Few month ago my mediacenter broke the HD (ext3) and without backups i
lost serveral Gig of data :(

Now I use a RAID1 and it saved me once (because power supply problem in
1 of the disk).
And now is simple tu install a software raid in a Linux box.

Another situation where (incremental) backup is important is when you
make a change of a project and you want to return to previous version.

So I think RAID1 + backup is the best choice :)
