It means clone one hard drive to another without disruption the running system.So you can worked as you cloned.
Am I right?

Right in what? What is the statement? Is your terminology correct or not? But does it concern you much? Do you have any real problem?

This is what live disk cloning is for me.
Have I understood it correctly?

You did understand correctly and should research the term "Volume Shadow Copy". That is what you are looking for.


Yes, it definitely can be done! Tools like "Drive Snapshot" and "VMWare Converter" let you make a clone of your system's disks in a defined state that you can later boot from while you are still able to work with the system. For more details you should look up the term "Volume Shadow Copy". That should clear things up a bit.

Exactly, Live Disk Cloning means clone one disk to another without breaking off the running operating system (It is called "Live Disk Cloning"). That is to say, it can clone while working without interrupting the running programs.
