If you use FlameRobin/IB_SQL or another tool: can you see any table
names? Any field names in those tables?
Did anyone run a script dropping tables?
Did anyone run a script deleting data?

Can you recover anything with IBsurgeon?
If not, and you can see data in the file, you might ask IBPhoenix (or
the people behind IBsurgeon) to take a look.
