If the striped array has failed, your only courses of action are to recover from backup or send the drives out for professional data recovery.  

Certainly you can try to re-create the array, but doing so may erase the data that's on the drives.

if your RAID is broken, your data is broken because you use RAID 0.

If you have enough space with only one HDD use RAID 1, when raid stop working or one of hdd has a problem, you can rebuild RAID


thanks paulmacd for your replay
if i recreate the raid agin it earese date can i use date recovery to recover the date

Yes, you could re-create the array and restore from backup.  

I would use caution though:  You know something happened to the array once.  There's a real possibility one of the drives has a problem that may occur again.  Your best bet may be to move to a RAID type that offers fault tolerance or redundancy.
