    Dont think so. Your only option would be to go to a data recovery
    company.....

    Depends on if you did a "quick" erase (just overwriting the tape
    header) or a full erase, which overwrites it all with zeros.

    If the former, a data recovery service can probably help you. If the
    latter, it's a crapshoot. It's technically possible to recover data,
    but difficult and expensive.
