A.
You have large store file indexes

B.
HBase has not flushed the MemStore

C.
HBase has not run a minor compaction

D.
HBase has not run a major compaction

Explanation:
The actual deletion of the excess versions is done upon major compaction.
Note: HBase basically never overwrites data but only appends. The data files are rewritten once in
while by a compaction process. A data file is basically a list of key-value pairs, where the key is
the composite {row key, column key, time}. Each time you do a put that writes a new value for an
existing cell, a new key-value pair gets appended to the store. Even if you would specify an
existing timestamp. Doing lots of updates to the same row in a short time span will lead to a lot of
key-value pairs being present in the store. Depending on the garbage collection settings (see
next), these will be removed during the next compaction.
