DRD clone definition.

Is it true that a dynamic root disk clone can be considered the "new source drive" after booting? Say I want to toggle between two drives and I am happy with the testing on my clone. Can I now create a clone of it over my original drive?

Re: DRD clone definition.

certainly
The idea is that you update the clone, boot to it and then use it.
If all works as expected, you have a choice to make this the "normal" boot disk, an dto remove the "origional disk.
I have a customer who has decided to move his boot disk from local to SAN, an dhe is using DRD to do precisely this

Re: DRD clone definition.

DRD is ideal to use for testing. You can patch the DRD clone, even install new software on it. Then boot and test it. If it fails in some way, boot to original root disk. Otherwise, the working clone can be copied to the original root.
