Restore HBase snapshot

Question asked by batman on Sep 25, 2014

I have a question on how to restore a snapshot of the volume /hbase.  I'm using Mapr M5 with Hbase 0.94.13. I have done the following:

 - configure and schedule a snapshot of the hbase volume via the dashboard
 - snapshot was created successfully
 - modify a row in one of the HBase tables. 
 - ok. i made a mistake and i want my old value back
 - restore the snapshot without any errors
 - my old value seems not to be there.  It still shows the modification value i made.

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong.  I appreciate if you could give me any insights on how to make this work.
