CVS: partial restore from backup

Hello,

Our CVS server recently suffered a disk crash. We were able to restore all but of a few of the revision control files from the nightly backup, but a small number could't be restored. We have backups from a few weeks ago with good copies of those files. We are pretty certain that content of those files hasn't changed in that time - can we use those, or will bad things happen? What will happen with tags made after that backup was created?

Thanks.

Everything made after last backup is lost and has to be entered again.

...restored the deleted files and tagged them with the missing tags. All good.
