Unfortunately you may have inadvertently damaged your system by moving the virtfs folder. As you have only moved and not deleted the folder recovery may be possible. Do you have a backup image of your entire system?

VirtFS (Jailed Shell)

Warning: If you run the rm command on any file or directory within /home/virtfs that is still mounted, you will also delete all of the files stored in the directory to which it is mounted. This will render your server nonfunctional. We do not recommend that you attempt to remove any of these files or directories in this way.

Hello :)

Yes, per our documentation:

If you run the rm command on any file or directory within the /home/virtfs directory that is still mounted, you will also delete all of the files stored in the directory to which it is mounted. This will render your server nonfunctional. We do not recommend that you attempt to remove any of these files or directories in this way.
You could try moving the directory back under /home if you are able to get shell access.

Thank you.

I believe you may not be correctly interpreting the disk space /home/virtfs uses. A bind mount is a transparent link between two places on the file system. For example, if a user views the contents of /home/virtfs/username/usr/bin, the user actually sees the contents of /usr/bin. Thus, the /home/virtfs/$user directory itself is not actually using up any additional space than already exists. Data is not actually duplicated.

Thank you.
