Yes, but only if you've either backed up the data on another hard drive or back it up using cloud storage.

The first method means you need an external hard drive, while the latter requires access to Xbox Live, which is a little easier to do, and probably something you have already anyway.

The good news is that if you want to enable cloud storage, you already have. There's no special method required to use cloud storage, you just need to be an Xbox Live member and be connected to the internet to keep all of your save data backed up. Good times.
