Subject Re: question on incremental backup

SSTables are write once. As soon as they appear on disk they ARE
flushed. This means you can safely copy them away. You should run
nodetool snapshot first and copy those hardlinks, because this will
guarantee that the file will not be compacted away while you are
copying it.
