I am using the parity on my mac, due to the limited hardware space, i deleted two olddest sst files under the path

'/Users/abc/Library/Application Support/io.parity.ethereum/chains/ethereum/db/906a34e69aec8c0d/overlayrecent/db'

now I can't open the parity, what should I do to reopen it again, if I can't open how would i get back my account?

If you have very limited space, please take a look at this article - The Ethereum-blockchain size will not exceed 1TB anytime soon. Also, make sure you are running parity 1.8.6. It contains several optimizations for database
