If this is the case, the easiest way to get this node back up is to
simply remove the corrupt SSTable from the datadir temporarily and to
try to recover its data offline.

If your disk is still full, it's going to be difficult for you to
complete a cleanup compaction. However if you are able to do so, I
believe it would in fact help.

0.6.6 does not contain the patch from :

And is therefore highly unlikely to successfully repair except by
accident. If your intent is to successfully repair, I strongly suggest
either upgrading to 0.6.8 (which contains the imo critical 1676, but
not the important-but-not-critical-1674) or just patching 1676 and
1674 into 0.6.6.
