tar boo-boo...



This is somewhat embarassing, but I was replacing one of my hard drives
with a larger one this morning, so I backed up everything to my
SCSI DAT drive with "tar cvf /dev/nst0 /fleminga".

When the new drive was in, a meant to restore the files (tar xvf), but
I typed "tar cvf /dev/nst0 /fleminga/*" and it wrote a few files out
to the tape drive, over top of the data I meant to restore.

Since it only wrote out a few files, does anyone know if there is a
way to retrieve the files off the tape that weren't overwritten?

Cheers,

 - Jim

(I still have the data on my old hard drive, so I'm not totally
hosed - but then I'd have to re-install it)
