Proliant DL380 G7 HDD Failure

Hi,

I have a Proliant DL380 G7 server with the Windows Server 2008 operating system, with two SAS Arrays.

The first (A) has two 146GB disks running on RAID 0 (OS) and the second (B) has four 500GB disks running on RAID 5 (data). 

One of those four discs is in trouble, flashing blue and amber.

I think it is not easy to find a similar disc, so I would have to buy one with more capacity.
How should I proceed to replace it without losing the content that is on the other discs?

Thanks.
