Riak issue after power outage

There may be better ways, but what I would do is:

Stop Riak, blow away your ${platform_data_dir}/anti_entropy directory (and yz_anti_entropy, if you have search enabled), and restart.  This will force a rebuild of your hash trees.  They rebuild automatically anyway; this is just making them rebuild faster.

So it would recover .. eventually.
