1 of the SSD's of my company's server was faulty without us knowing it. This resulted in the back-up not running properly. After a required reboot for Windows Updates the old and faulty drive mirrored with the healthy up-to-date drive. So now both the drives have the old installation and the old data on it. So right now im missing days of work and so many more e-mails.

Is there anyway to recover the old 'healthy and up-to-date' mirror? Or atleast the files/e-mails that were on it?

It is very unlikely that you will be able to find that data, as it has been overwritten. You could try connecting the "good" SSD as a 2nd HD to another PC and then scanning it with getdataback. If it sees your data you can register the product and copy the files off:

But as I said, it is unlikely to help. Your other option would be to send the "good" SSD to a data professional recovery Agency like Gillware:

If after the reboot the system re-mirrored from the out-of-date drive to the up-to-date drive, your newer data is lost.  The mirroring process would have copied over the entire drive with the old data.

For the future you need to find out why your backup failed during the drive failure since this will happen again someday... Either that, or find something that will warn you immediately of a drive failure...
