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-
command line file system and media management forensic analysis
file system tools allow you to examine file systems of a suspect
a non-intrusive fashion.
The media management tools allow you to examine the layout of disks
other media. The Sleuth Kit supports DOS partitions, BSD partitions
labels), Mac partitions, Sun slices (Volume Table of Contents), and
disks. With these tools, you can identify where partitions are
extract them so that they can be analyzed with file system analysis
This can be used to attempt to "undelete" files from a UFS
