I have a tar file on a 4mm DAT tape. I accidently
tried to write over it and lost the beginning of
the tape where tar wrote a ~zero length tar file.
I tried the 'dd if=/dev/nst0' command and it gives
20 records for the first file. 0 for the second.
and I/O errors for the third and all subsequent
attempts. The 'mt fsf' command does the same.
Does anyone know how to recover from this?
And, yes, we all know how to avoid it in the
future--check the write lock tab before restoring.
