Why the snapshots show different size in replica/original volume?

Hello Madhu1,

 

The size descrapancy between the source and destination volume is due to the source volume most likely already having space efficiency features already taken into effect. The destination volume either doesn't have the same efficiency settings as the source or the efficiency jobs have not completed on the destination volume.
