In short, everything that is part of the base system or ports can be restored with some effort. If it is a subdirectory of /usr/src/, you can restore it with csup(1). If it is a subdirectory of /usr/ports you can restore it by updating your ports tree. Other directories under /usr (except /usr/local) can be restored by rebuilding and reinstalling the base system as described in the handbook. If you have removed /usr/local or a subdirectory of it you could reinstall all your ports. If you removed (part of) your home directory or any other non-system data directory, you'd better have a backup. If you have never made a backup of your own data, start now!
