Online redo logs are the "Achilles heel" of Oracle. That is why they must be mirrored to the point of paranoia. It is likely that the archive log mode is irrelevant in this case. But in general, archivelog mode is pretty useful.

Is it possible you just accidently pushed the "offline" button on the disk drive where your redo is? Otherwise, you will lose data, unless the db was shut down cleanly before the redo went bye-bye.
