Hi @Rushikesh Deshmukh

The following table provides an overview for quickly comparing these approaches, which I’ll describe in detail below.

i used distcp as well but that did not work for me , in the sense data was copied but while running hbck i had issue

if you want to create backup on same cluster then copytable and sanpshot are very easy

for inter cluster snapshot works good

let me know if you need more details
