Roaming Profiles as Backup Solution

I'm currently administerting 60 PC's on a Windows 2000 network, all clients are either XP or 2000.  I have a SAN backup drive that I'm using to store all of our "roaming profiles," mostly for backup purposes since the company I work for does not wish to invest in backup software.  Are there any "issues" with doing a backup like this if I just want to backup user profiles on the client PC's?

Thanks,

Bandwidth issues?  Corruption issues?  Is there a better way to do this?  I want to know if anybody had issues with Roaming Profiles that would point to a reason not to use them for backup purposes.

I'm using roaming profiles for 600 users (in different configurations) with no problems for several years.
No, there should be no problems with the bandwidth in local LAN, but for sure will be if you have clients using slow WAN links.
No corruptions yet.
