The only place I'm aware of that you might be able to get something is with Lumigent Technologies, but I wouldn't get your hopes up. If Microsoft can't do anything at this point, it is VERY unlikely that anyone else will be able to.
The biggest words of advice, if you haven't restored it, you haven't backed it up. Backups should ALWAYS be tested to make sure they are valid.
