How do you know one of your disks is bad, did you run diagnostics? Also, RAID1 just makes a duplicate of the 1st disk on the 2nd disk. It does not have any parity to recover data. I would run diagnostics on the disk and if they both pass then use regular data recovery software to get your lost partition back.
