Yes, the information of all data are available in of the hard drive fails. Since you have extra drives, then reconstruction will start immediately after the device failure. But incase the second hard drive also fails at the same time then all data will be lost. So, the main purpose of Raid 5 is that it can survive one disk failure but not more than 2 or so.

It is not recommended to keep a failed drive, you should start taking measures because if the second drive also fails then you will eventually lose all data.

Well, the only thing that you can do is if it is under warranty then you can try to RMA your drive or else you will have to take your drive to a data recovery center to get it fixed.
