If you have a backup restore from that, if not (apart from the obvious
"why no backup?"), I hope whoever has asked you to do this is paying by
the hour or this a small drive with relatively few large files.

Well, this drive was to be the backup. Short story is... it started
with a friend's personal computer with way too much data. They are
migrating all computers in the house to Linux which in their case
means moving all data off to backup reformatting and repartitioning
from FAT32/WinXP to Linux. The USB drive was to be the main backup
once the migration was complete. In this case, data was moved, and
the broken FAT was only discovered after the original disk was

So... unless by some chance there are duplicate copies of the same
data on another drive, this is currently the only copy. Plan was to
have the data on the PC hard drives, USB drive as the main backup, and
a DVD RW secondary backup. We didn't get that far. :-( There are no
other source to rebuild the data from....
