Unfortunately I don't think there's nothing that can be done, flashing
removes all information. I'm sorry about this.

However, I'd like to determine how it's possible that there was a failed
backup without an error message.  Hopefully you still have the same
card, could you check a few things:

1. Which ITOS release did you have?
2. Was the card so full that backup didn't fit to it or was it
3. If you check the card for filesystem errors, are there errors?
4. What is your card type, model and size?
5. "ls -l" of the backup directory?
6. What data you had selected to be backed up (all?)?
