Hello Babak,

You run vSphere, right? If so, the process is described in that User Guide.

There is a chance I got your question incorrectly. If so, please specify, what backup job type it was originally and which one you used to send the backup to tape.

Thanks

How you created the "vbk backup"? It should be possible to restore this .vbk to your repository, then perform FLR from it.

Is that your means in first step had to restore my backup file in repository then use FLR ?
because i want use directly FLR for vbk file that resided on tape drive. because i have removed vbk file from repository and it is just on tape drive

Yes, you should restore the backup to your repository first, then perform FLR.
