Possible to repair corrupt RRD files?


I have a gentoo server that the hard drive failed on; thus corrupting the FS and most of my nagios build. I was able to restore most of the server and moved it to a RHEL platform. My only remaining problem is that I have a ton of RRD files that are corrupt. Is there anyway to recover this data or should I just consider it gone? Unfortunately I do not have a backup, until this server failed the powers that be never felt it was critical enough to get backed up!

Probably not worth the time, money or hassle. Time to setup a good backup infrastructure I'd say.
