doesn't need to be the same hard drive or capacity, as a raid 1 will mirror the smaller of the two drives onto the other. (Ex: you have a 320gb hard drive and a 250gb hard drive, you'll get a 250gb Raid 1 mirror from the two). Normally all data is lost on a raid 1 array when it is initialized though... Haven't seen any that can create an array from an existing formatted disk.
