How SnapRestore works with deduplication

The metadata created during a deduplication operation is located both in the FlexVol volume and in the aggregate. Therefore, when you initiate a SnapRestore operation on a volume, the metadata is restored to the volume and the restored data retains the original space savings.

After a SnapRestore operation is completed, if deduplication is enabled on the volume, any new data written to the volume continues to be deduplicated.
