Ok. I wondered whether your loss of the header page might have been caused
by exceeding the filesystem size limit. But a 30 Mb database is tiny.

If you don't have a backup which you can revert to, about all you have left
is to get it recovered professionally --- and certainly to find out what
happened, so you can avoid it in future. On XP I'd put automatic backups
on the suspect list.

IBPhoenix and IBSurgeon both offer professional recovery services.
