Corrupt qcow2 image

http://serverfault.com – I seem to have corrupted my qcow2 image. I accidentally ran qemu-img create on one of my virtual machines while running. What seems to have happened is that qemu-img seems to have put a new tag on top of the while, while the rest of the image seems to be just fine. The problem is that I seem to be unable to seperate the two, and I am unable to mount the whole image with KVM as it always seem to just mount the empty qcow2 image which is first in the file. I have been trying this on another virtual machine to learn from the previous mistake. This is the orginal file - size 11553275904 q (HowTos)
