You definitely don't need to RAID.

It usually can be done, but it depends on how it was backed up and on the RAID controller.

Unless you understand why you need to implement a RAID and how to back it up, you probably shouldn't do it. At a minimum you need to understand that RAID 0 improves transfer rates (this is why so many people use it), but a single hard disk failure causes the loss of all data on the RAID. RAID or not, you need to backup important data.
