Subject Re: Cassandra COPY to CSV and DateTieredCompactionStrategy

Regarding the first question you need to configure your application to
write to both CFs (old and new) during the migration phase.

I'm not sure about the second question, but my guess is that only the
writeTime will be taken into account.
