If it truly went bad, you may not be able to recover the files yourself.  In all likelihood, you'll have to send this to a data recovery server that charges $500-$10,000 to recover the data.  Stripe sets are not good because while they are fast, they are unreliable - if one disk fails, ALL DATA is lost.

I had a snap server with a single drive - don't remember the model, but I do recall it didn't work with an AD Domain - only NT4 - didn't like it at all.  Got the company to replace it with a drive installed internally.
