Recover overwritten tape.

Hello. I had LTO-6 Tape with about 80 tar recodrs with couple Terrabytes of data. Recently, after power down, tape drive rewinded the tape and i accidently wrote few new records from the beginning and made prevoius data unavaliable.

Is there any way to skip past EOD marker, move to next available file record and recover data?

I'm using pure tar and mt, under CentOS 7. Tape drive is HP LTO-6, SAS external drive.
