Define what you mean by "snapshot", and maybe "normal snapshot"

Backing up the Jira data directory is a simple task though - it really is "take a copy and put it somewhere else". If your Jira is running though, you may end up with missing data - it's worth thinking about a dynamic incremental backup for larger installations and thinking about whether to exclude the index directory.

I did that..copy the data and put it to the required directory but still i can populate that. Ok let me explain further:

I have created Boards for our sprints on the agile space and versions, so what i need to get that data created into the new Jira instance.

That's all in the import/export data, it has nothing to do with the data on disk. I think that is a different question
