Does the backup process include syncing? On-drive write cache can also trick you.
For absolutely critical data, it is a good idea to use a controller with battery-backed write cache or a service/product that guarantees durability.

I had Power Failure.
I have backup of files: edits, fsimage.
I am backing it up with:
curl -s http://nameNode:50070/getimage?getimage=1 > fsimage
curl -s http://nameNode:50070/getimage?getedits=1 > edits
When I am trying to start the HDFS with the recovered files, I got error about the edits file : "Error replaying edit log at offset 1921"
Also, I have edits.new file, when I rename it to edits I got: "ERROR org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.common.Storage: Error replaying edit log at offset 2494103"
What is the problem?!
And from now on, how can I do a backup that works?! :)
