How FlexClone files work with data compression

You can run data compression on a FlexVol volume that contains FlexClone files. Only fully cloned files can be created on FlexVol volumes that have data compression enabled. Partially cloned files cannot be created on FlexVol volumes that have data compression enabled.

If incompressible data detection is enabled on the volume, then the incompressible flag is inherited by the cloned file.
