Subject Re: Drastic increase in disk usage after starting repair on 3.7
Date Thu, 21 Sep 2017 08:02:16 GMT

This might be a long shot, but some repairs might fail to clear their
snapshot (not sure if its still the case with C* 3.7 however, I had the
problem on 2.X branche).
What does nodetool listsnapshot indicate ?
