Hey @votekashifkhan,

The best thing to do in such a case is to restore your server from a backup/snapshot:

However, if you did not have backups enabled, the server might be lost. You could try to get in touch with the DigitalOcean support team and ask them if they have a backup by any chance but it is highly unlikely:

Hope that helps! - Bobby.
