    Don't know if it will work when the header has been overwritten but it is all I know of that will do that type of thing.
    other wise it is off to the data recovery service.

    I have downloaded a demo copy of this software but it will not process out of order tapes uless you buy the full product at £1600.  Which to me for a one off job is a little excesive.

    I take it then that the only solution is to get MMPC.  I would have thought that there might have been another solution available.
