Can i replace 1 drive with RAID 1?

Hello,

I have an ACER Aspire easystore Storage Device with 4x 500GB hard drives setup as RAID 1. One hard drive has failed. 1. Will my data be safe if i was to replace just this one hard drive of the same capacity? 2. Does the replacement hard drive need to be the same brand(seagate) and model type?

Thanks in advance
