I have been using raid0 with four disk over two years. But suddenly it started giving and error at logging

Errors were found while checking the disk drive for /

in order to solve this i booted the machine with a live cd and tried to fix the file system with fsck -f /dev/md0

But since then I dont find the /dev/md0.

the result of fdisk -l

root@PartedMagic:~# fdisk -l

But now the system does not boot. I think the reason is as the /dev/md0 is not available.

root@PartedMagic:~# mdadm --detail /dev/md0
mdadm: cannot open /dev/md0: No such file or directory

I need the data available in the drives. Can some one help me with fixing this so i can at least retrieve my data.
