Although a repair tool exists for eleveldb the simplest solutions is to simply delete the corrupted partition and run a repair job. 

1. Stop the node

2. Locate the directory you have configured for eleveldb data storage and delete the subdirectory 479555224749202520035584085735030365824602865664

3. Start the node

4. Follow these instructions :

PS - It’s better to run a cluster with 5 nodes. 

Best Regards,

Bryan Hunt
