Possible To Recover Overwritten Video Recording?

Is there any way to recover overwritten recordings?

I have had a scenario where the client didn't do the backup of an incident and he now needs it very desperately?

Thanks.

If it was on auto-overwrite and ran out of space, then it would delete one or more of the oldest files, freeing up space, thus allowing it to grow existing files and create new files from the sectors that were deleted. For efficiency it would be expected that the auto-delete process would delete a few files at a time, so that it was not continually running.
