Yes, that's another way Marianne has suggested.
This would work fine if you had a low number of tapes, but it if a big environment with 100's or even 1000's of tapes, this woul d probably be impossible.
If below NBU 7.5, you could manually search the image DB to find the header files created since the catalog backup. When restoring the catalog backup, the information for these backups in the EMM DB tables will be lost (as you are recovering an old version.
NBCC can be used to rebuild these entries, it is not ideal as the tapes will be marked as full but it is the best fix that can be made.
If only a few tapes, NBCC can be used to identify them, then they could be expired and imported, from Mariannes suggestion.
At 7.5, the header files are in the EMM db, so they are not available to look through to identify tapes. If the system is not to broken, you could cat_export the headers to flat files and look in them, if this is not working, you're probably stuck, unless you can phase 1 /2 import.
