I'd like to ask a two-stage question:

1. Is it possible to recover files that have been deleted?

2. Which tools or procedures are suggested for recovery?

The preferred method is to recover files from backup. If you don't take backups, you've decided that you don't really care about the data. This being said, you might take a look at something like:

% cat /usr/ports/sysutils/sleuthkit/pkg-descr
The Sleuth Kit (previously known as TASK) is a collection of UNIX- based command line file system and media management forensic analysis tools. The file system tools allow you to examine file systems of a suspect computer in
a non-intrusive fashion.

The media management tools allow you to examine the layout of disks and other media. The Sleuth Kit supports DOS partitions, BSD partitions (disk labels), Mac partitions, Sun slices (Volume Table of Contents), and GPT disks. With these tools, you can identify where partitions are located and extract them so that they can be analyzed with file system analysis tools.

This can be used to attempt to "undelete" files from a UFS filesystem....
