Yes, but all traces of a file table are gone, and so is any partitioning info. It's a disk with files physically sitting on it, but no index of their position, length and names. Perhaps if he's super lucky, a capable software can find $MFT intact on the disk, and use it to restore everything else. But that requires quite the amount of dumb luck...
