Unless you've written new data to the disk, the old data is still there. So yes it is possible to recover files. Google for "UFS recovery". But unless you've made a backup (which you should) it won't be easy. There is restore(8), in case you've made backups with dump(8). You could also set up a cron job to make nightly snapshots, and mount them somewhere so you can access the filesystem as it existed at the time the snapshot was taken. This way you don't have to mess around with backup media.
