Centos7 Server with Raid5 Array(3Disks) does not start any more

I own a Dell T20 Server with an 250GBSSD and a 3 disk Raid5 array with 4TB each.
After a centos update I restartet the server but it did not really start even not to emergency mode. I could not work on this problem for some weeks.
When I tried today,it startet to emergency mode and I could see the log and make a screenshot with my camera. From the log I chose the part with red marked text.
But I just realize, I am not allowed to add attachments.

I need the data in the Raid array from that machine and will appreciate any help.

You can also reinstall the OS without touching the Raid 5 array.

Thank you Cheruskerfuerst, I would, before I do that rather like to know how I can copy the startup logfile to a stick and send it to the forum.
I have some software and data on the SDD with the OS, which I could probably save.
So how do I copy the log-file and who can allow me to send it as an attachment?
