How FlexClone volumes work with data compression

If you split a FlexClone volume from the parent volume, then the new volume inherits data compression attributes from the parent volume. The attributes inherited indicate whether deduplication, postprocess compression, and inline compression are enabled. The space savings achieved in the parent volume are inherited by the new volume.

If you create a FlexClone volume when the decompression operation is active on the parent volume, then the decompression operation does not run on the cloned volume.
