Question is; will a mirrored raid work correctly with drives where the data has been ghosted outside the raid then installed into a raid 1 data server?

Because the copy process can take so long with large hard drives for years when installing a mirrored raid on a data server, to save time Iíve been ghosting the data drives outside the raid then installing the drives and just starting the mirrored raid with auto rebuild enabled but without copying.

Recently I installed a mirrored NAS server and learned that with a NAS the mirrored raid has to be built through copying process from a source drive in the NAS.

This made me question whether the same is true for a normal mirrored raid. I have asked a number of my normal networking friends and no one seems to know for sure.
