RAID-1 NTFS Corruption

My client has a SBS2003 server.  Yesterday they reported it wasn't working.  By the time that I got there it had been physically powered off and on a few times.

CHKDSK ran at startup and showed some major errors.  I'm not sure if this was the original problem or was a secondary problem caused by the hard power off.  Anyway, my question is as follows.  The server has hardware RAID-1.  In this scenario what you end up with is two bad drives, both with NTFS file system corrupt.  Would software RAID-1 mirrored drives using dynamic disks give the same result, or might one of them stay intact?

A RAID1 (software or hardware) will just keep you safe from one single drive failing. Nothing else. No RAID configuration is able to replace a backup; if bad data is written to a RAID, the hardware redundancy won't help you at all.
