Hi all,

We have a PVE 5.4 cluster (details below), with a Synology DS1819+ NFS 
server for storing file backups.

The setup is as follows:

- Debian 9 VM with 2 disks; system disk con Ceph RBD, file backup data 
disk on NFS (6,5TB)
- NFS storage on Synology NAS.

Backup disk was getting full, so we issued a resize disk from web GUI, 
with a 500GB size increment.

GUI reported timeout with 500 error. After that, disk was shown 
incremented at VM hardware view, but storage showed the disk having 
500GB. VM showed the block device having 500GB (partiton was 6,5TB yet).

We have tried incrementing the disk back to 7TB, but disk/partition is 
corrupt (It was a bad idea, but its too late now).

Any idea to recover lost data on NFS server? :)

We have done this operation hundreds of times without issues, has anyone 
had such a catastrophic experience?
