I'm not sure of the drivers/software will work with win7 (I seem to recall reading that they do, but I may have imagined it) but your biggest problem is probably going to be DRM. Anything marked as copy once, won't transfer from the DVR. It's going to depend on your cable provider.
RAID protection is only for failed drives. That's it. It's no replacement for a proper backup.
