But this could mean copying the bad disk to the good one.
Remove one of the drive, boot the system, run fsck.
If everything appears to be OK, readd the second drive and let it sync.
If not, poweroff, remove the drive, replug only the second one.
Try fsck on this one and see the result.

If even in this case you have problems, none of the disks is
itself "correct" and the problem is just unresolvable.
Just start copying your data away from this filesystem
and recreate it from scratch.

Best regards.
