your 2nd drive seems to be in bad condition,you might need to do these things:
--remove bad disk 2
--power on your device
--hot add a brand new disk once system is up and data is verified
--wait resync job until it is finished
--hot add another one new disk
By default, Xraid mode with 2 disks is actually raid 1 mode,when you hot plug one more disk then it will change to raid 5 mode automatically.

Actually what I would recommend you do is ensure you have a good backup, then remove the 2TB disk from the NAS, update to the latest firmware and then do a factory default (http://www.readynas.com/kb/faq/boot/how_do_i_use_the_boot_menu) with just your 2TB disks in the NAS.
