If you didn't save the netbackup catalog, you have the task of doing an inventory of each tape.  Netbackup wil have to read each tape to see what is on it, since it has "forgotten" when its database was wiped out in the format.

Now, perhaps you know of a recent tape that has the netbackup product and a somewhat recent catalog.  In this case, reinstall netbackup, and inventory that tape first, then restore the catalog.  Now you may be able to import the bulk of your tapes without having to read every one of them.  Just be careful; you will want to import only those tapes not changed after this catalog was created/backed up!
