Yes, perhaps...

If, since you've deleted them, the space that they occupied on the drive
has not being re-used, then it is possible to get them back.  But, if
the space has been re-used, the data is lost.  And encrypted file
systems, or drives, may make it impossible.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
