Hello,

I have 1TB Raid 0 (2x 500GB hybrid solid state drives). I received an error code 2000-142, with Validation 4537 and my system has crashed.
1 Is there a process that can repair the hard drive?
2. Can I change setup (RAID) and run off one hard drive until I can replace the other one?

If you are using raid 0, all your data are lost if one drives die. So if the other drive is dead, the answer is no you can't because raid 0 is setup as so.
Let me explain to you raid 0.
Raid 0 is when you have 2 or more storage drives and a particular program is split into two, therefore the work that is done for example copying files is split into the two raid 0 setup storage drives. So if 1 drive dies, the other drive only have half of the information of your files therefore it is missing 50% of the other dead files. So unless you can fix your drive, all your data is lost.

Finally my recommendation is usually have a backup drive to save all your most important files to prevent matters like this to happen or at least use raid 5.
