You can use the jigdo tool to recreate the missing ISO images

The advantage of Jigdo for the DVD mirror servers is that the bulk

Jigdo loads a compressed ISO image with lots of holes and then loads
all the package files which fit exactly into the holes.

That eases problems for Debian servers, I don't see an advantage to me.
