Subject Re: Backup again

Hi Michael!
I don't think that it is true that you can only backup system that are down,
the backup tools that are posted in HBASE-974 can be used on system that are
up and running.
What that will do for you is to scan the tables and serialize those to disk
and the
other way around when importing.

Will that work for you?

Regards Erik
