I have cloned my hard drive. Is there a way to update the clone as changes are being made to the source drive?

best bet is to configure it as a mirrored drive.
if you have onboard raid it can do this, otherwise windows can make the drive mirrored in disk manager.

If you don't want to do a raid, take a look at Syncback

I looked at their site and I couldn't see that the software would do what I am wanting. Will the software clone my primary drive (all files, os, and software) and then make incremental updates to the cloned drive?

It's been years since I used it and it might have change some, but I use to make a clone with another program, and then setup a one way sync from the main drive to the clone, to keep it current.
I used the free version for such a simple sync (both drives in the same system).

see Synchronization (about 3/4 of the way down)
