After replicating data between a cloud server with deduplication and a local server without deduplication, should I re-enable deduplication on the local server due to increased space consumption?

I have two file servers on Windows Server 2022 with active replication, a public cloud server and another local one, the server that is in the cloud has deduplication configured and not the local server, when the local server finished replicating the data it came consuming one bigger space for not having the deduplication active, the question is do I return to activate the deduplication in that local server?

    Hello there,

    It is recommend that you always enable Data Deduplication on these workloads:

    General purpose file servers (GPFS) serving shares such as team shares, user home folders, work folders, and software development shares.

    Virtualized desktop infrastructure (VDI) servers.

    Virtualized backup applications, such as Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM).

    This topic explains how to install Data Deduplication, evaluate workloads for deduplication, and enable Data Deduplication on specific volumes.

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
