So my question is... What happened to all the data on the volume?
You've saved several files on it, but none of them are visible in the
database any longer.

Unless you've explicitly deleted them (nsrmm -d -S <ssid>), then they
should still be in the database.

Any query concerning information about savesets fails to list the tape
(naturally ok)

I know Networker would recycle the tape if the retention policy is setup
for a shorter period.

"the" retention policy?  Which retention policy?  Retention policies
affect client instances.  Without a saveset to associate it with a
client, there's no reason for an expiration date.

I think the savesets on here were prematurely deleted, but I cannot
begin to guess why that happened.

I think those savesets where deleted as a the parent savesets where
deleted due to a manually started recycle job of other tapes.
