I need to partition a large table that already has page level compression on data and indexes. I have set up the partition scheme and have all of the file groups defined.

My plan is to:
1. drop all indexes except for the clustered index
2. recreate the clustered index with DROP EXISTING=ON using the partition scheme and DATA_COMPRESSION = PAGE
3. recreate all other indexes with DATA_COMPRESSION = PAGE

My question is this:

Will the table data remain compressed when I move to the partitioned structure?

After doing some reading, it seemed to be a better idea to rename the original table and create a new table set up with PAGE compression using the desired partitions and copy the data into that table.
