Yes there is a possibility to restore them
What you need to do is to build the same exchange server enviornment again....that is
with the same ORG name and Administrative group name and Server name.....
The you can point the pf store to these two files (the edb and stm) and then try mounting the store.
If it does not mount then you need to find out the state that the public folder database is in (Dirty or Clean)
You can do this by running the eseutil /mh "path of the public edb file"
If the store is in a clean shutdown state then the store should mount
If it is in a dirty shutdown state then you need to run eseutil /p (hard repair) on the files to get them into a clean shutdown state
In case you donot want to do the above and jst want to get the data back then you can also use utilities such as Ontrack to extract data from the edb and stm files
