Subject Re: Can manually remove HFiles (similar to bulk import, but bulk remove)?
Date Mon, 09 Jul 2012 19:38:35 GMT
I _think_ you should be able to do it and be just fine but you'll need to shut down the region
servers before you remove and start them back up after you are done. Someone else closer to
the internals can confirm/deny this.
