It *may* be least risky to manually remove these rows and then restart DC3.
But unfortunately without really diving into the code, I can't make any
statement about what effects it might have.

What actually happens is that you automatically create a snapshot in the
snapshots dir when you drop, so you would have to move (or (better) hard
link) those files back into place.

Right. Refresh will rename all SSTables while opening them.

As an alternative to refresh, you can restart the node; Cassandra loads
whatever files it finds in the data dir at startup.
