Clone Logical Drive
A virtual logical partition is a copy (a clone) of a logical drive using a defined geometry that emulates a real logical drive or partition. If you have a logical drive that is recognized by Windows, and you cannot access the data in that drive, you may be able to gain access to your data by creating a virtual partition copy.

You can execute all tasks applicable to a logical drive on this drive copy, including Modify Partition command.
