[plug] Recover a backup

A client has a full backup from a Pronto Linux system, but the start of the
tape has been overwritten by someone starting a backup and aborting it. The
data that needs to be retrieve is believed to be on the part of the tape
that is after the area that was overwritten.

dd gets to the end of the aborted backup and no further. We don't have any
details of the command use to create the backups.

Any ideas on what we can try ? I believe it is the only backup.
