P400 array - Can I replace a drive while Parity Initialization has not yet completed?

DL380 G5

RAID 5 array

very recent  firmware/bios/drivers

 

I have a logical drive that was extended about 5 days ago but is still showing only 8% "In Progress" under Parity Initialization Status.   At this rate it will take weeks to complete.

 

My question is if a drive fails before this is complete am I ok?   Have some important data/services running on this box and it going down would be bad.

 

PS: I have the Transformation Priority"set to High.

 

Thanks!
