deleting the device node doesn't relate at all to the device, your data is just fine. you could recreate the device node, but it's probably easier just to reboot it. /dev/ isn't a real filesystem, it's all built dynamically on boot (and on other event changes). Even removing it and plugging it in again is often enough to recreate it.
