    Do you have access to the hardware node [host server] ?
    If not, the most you can do is recover the data from the backups and/or talk to your provider. Or provide them the command mentioned below.
    If yes, try this command from the host server, vzctl recover <VPSID>.
    It will reinstall OS template and all application templates which were previously installed on the VE. This action will make it possible to start the broken VE.
    /home/virtfs folder is created when a user logs in with a jail shell account. It is hardlink and deleting them will delete the original file/folders. You can hard link binaries from the main server to your virtual servers, that need to be used. When you create virtual servers, they should usually take up about 10-15 MB extra.

    Hope that helps.. :)
