Hi Vijay,
Yes the files are still readable from the .glusterfs path.
There is no explicit error. However, trying to read a text file in python simply gives me null characters:
>>> open('ott_mf_itab').readlines()
 And reading binary files does the same

 For files that are not readable from the client, can you check if the 
 file is readable from the .glusterfs/ path?
 What is the specific error that is seen while trying to read one such 
 file from the client?
