Serious problem with data retrieval in dat Surestore8 (C1533A)

I have a Compaq labeled HP C1533A drive (8GB), and,by error, a backup process was launched on a tape that had some files important to recover. This process did not annex, and although it was stopped inmediately (the backup utility used is NTBACKUP from Windows NT 4.0), now the tape has been with a small and incomplete catalogue. I need to recover data recorded in previous backup, but
I DO NOT KNOW IF THIS IS POSSIBLE, NOR WITH WHAT TOOL COULD MAKE IT.
It is a very important particular problem... PLEASE, HELP!

Many thanks
