New Cloned Volume Has Low Usage/Size, Is It Safe To Delete The Original?

We needed to get a copy of live data on Array 1 for testing on Array 2.

The original data was on an online volume on array 1. This volume replicated to array 2 (offline). So we cloned the offline volume on array 2 to create a new volume with the data on (and made that online)


The original volume and replicated volume take up about 18GB. The cloned version is only 3mb! But when I connect the volume to a server, all the data is there.


Have I done anything wrong? And the plan is to delete the original data soon, if I delete the original volume on array 1 and the replicated version, will I loose data on the clone?
