you can, but everything is all over the map, and its even more of a pain in the *** because I build my fort on/in a volcano, 36 zlevels with garbage all over.
Luckily the lazy newb pack comes with dfhack utilities, ran dflair before I abandoned the fort, made it so the items don't go everywhere when you abandon the fort, you still have to reclaim everything though. Back up to 46 dwarves and the majority of them are still stuck hauling the old forts stuff around.
