Yes, that's expected now, when the rebuild finishes try xfs_repair on both, but like mentioned you'll likely need to use a file recovery util to recover anything.

 

P.S. Unrelated, but the SSD needs a new SATA cable.

Ok, I'll give that a shot when the rebuild is done and post an update to this thread. Thanks again for all the help you and Trurl have given me.

I've already replaced that cable a few times. Again I'm thinking that the sata ports on my motherboard going bad is what causing these issues to occur in the first place. That SSD and cable are brand new.

Should I go a head with the XFS_Repair? 

Yes, xfs_repair will likely need to search for a secondary superblock, let it run, it can take some time.

Honestly I'm not worried about recovering data at this point. I really just want to get the array back to stable working order. I have backups of important files and everything else can be re-downloaded. Should I just go ahead and format the drives and try adding them back to the array?

You must format the drives while they are still in the array. Stop the array, click on the drive to get to its page and change its filesystem. When you start the array it will be reformatted to the new filesystem. Repeat to get it back to the original filesystem. You can do both drives at the same time.

It should mount now, the question is, will there be any data there? Start the array and check.

There is a ton of folders in the lost+found folder on that disk. Some of them look like they have good data, some are empty and some have files with random numbers as names. Not even sure what to do with all this. I don't know what the file structure was on the drive before it failed so I'm not sure how to go about restoring this data.

So disk 4 keeps failing to allow writes. I've rerun the xfs_repair a few times which temporarily fixes it but it just goes right back to "Unable to write to disk" error. Not sure if this means that drive is failed and needs to be replaced or what. I'm still waiting on new sata cables which should be on Friday.
