Hi Francisco,

Snapshots folders are inside the CF folders for a few weeks (months ?). It is a modification that have been made in a recent version of C*.

"Is this the normal behavior of nodetool?"

Yes, it is the normal behaviour for snapshots.

I have a one node cassandra installation (1.1.6) with only one column family. When i tried to execute:

./nodetool -h -p 7199 snapshot MykeyspaceName -t 20121126

The snapshot is stored in a snapshot folder inside the columnfamiliy (the only that the keyspace has) instaead of the keyspace data folder.

Is this the normal behavior of nodetool?
