My server has an Intel Storage Matrix Console that says it has a missing hard drive (screenshot). How can I determine what size & type of hard drive without having to open the case?

This server has all hard drives located inside of the case.
 
Is this something that I can determine by searching in the Interl Matrix Storage console application, or is there a utility or program that I can download that will give me this information?

It's in a RAID 1, so the two drives are hopefully matched.  Thus the missing drive should be another Seagate Barracuda 750GB drive (Model ST3750330AS).

How do you know that the drive is a Seagate Barracuda 750GB drive (Model ST3750330AS)?

How were you able to determine this by looking at the screenshot?

That's the model number of the existing drive.  I'm making the assumption that the drives were purchased at the same time, and the server was originally configured with a RAID 1 using matched drives.

Now that I know exactly what kind of drive it is, I can order a replacement hard drive.
