If your question is if you can restore your files, then yes, if you have tape back up or something like that...

As far as using the files in the FOUND directory, you would need to go through the directories and look at each file and try to get it in it's oroginal location. Have you looked at the files. Do they look like gibberish and no heirarchial? Or do they look like they came from a specific directory and you can put them back in place easily.
