Very sorry to hear. Sounds like a nightmare. I have never encountered that so don't know the best way to resolve.
A couple of things I am doing that you may want to consider since you are rebuilding anyway.
I read that running the OVM manager in a VirtualBox VM is now supported so I am doing that. I can now make vm snapshots of it and backup to whole VM to another machine in case I lose the machine it is on.
I am periodically doing clones & cold backups of all my VMs to external storage. The most important ones are being backed up by CommVault inside the VM but having the entire VM is better (yes, I wear both 'belts & suspenders' to keep my 'pants' from falling down).
For my Dev Environment as an extra layer I attached a 4TB USB3.0 drive to make extra archivals to.
Wish you the best of luck & will update the thread if I think of anything for your current situation.
EDIT: Regarding 'rm -rf' before deleting anything you might need copy it somewhere else first...
