I wouldn't recommend doing this before regular backups for the simple
reason that for large data sets it will take a looooong time to run, and
will require that your node backup schedule be properly staggered (you
should never be running repair on all nodes at the same time.) Backups
should be treated as eventually consistent just like Cassandra itself.

That said, if you are doing a one-time backup of a node and for whatever
reason you want it as up-to-date as possible without unnecessary data, you
should also run nodetool compact.
