/ dev / simfs: no such file or directory when opening filesystem

I accidentally deleted the wrong folder with rm -rf, every tool I tried told me that I had no hard drive or that no filesystem was found. When I type df I get:

File system size Used Use% Set to

/ dev / simfs 25G 7.6G 18G 31% /

none 256M 12K 256M 1% / dev

But if I type debugfs -w / dev / simfs, I get the error:

/dev/simfs: No such file or directory while opening filesystem


I am using a VPS hosted by OVH, what about this filesystem?

I have the same scenario / problem. To continue the conversation, I also tried

tune2fs -l /dev/simfs


which outputs

tune2fs 1.42.9 (4-Feb-2014)
tune2fs: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/simfs
Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock.


When trying to scan the entire disk, you will get the same invalid superblock error like / dev / sda
