Hi there I would like to setup a RAID back up type system where 1 drive is mirroring the other but I want to put them in a NAS so I dont have to fiddle around with the existing hard drives

Does anyone have an idea?

RAID is not a backup solution. RAID protects you from disk failure, nothing more.

The question is what do you want - a backup solution, or protection from disk failure? If it is to protect from disk failure then see page 15 of the manual - select RAID 1.
