Can I Restore Shadow Copy From A Tape Backup?

I understand how Shadow Copy works for the end-user but my questions is slightly different. I would like to know if I can restore the SNAPSHOTs from tape.

I have a Windows 2003 R2 STD file server that has the data drive configured to create 3 snapshots daily and allotted 40GB for Shadow Copy.

My problem is when I run PerfectDisk to defrag the data drive, it overwrites my Shadow Copy snapshots even with it configured to store 40GB. So I have not defragged the drive in a long time, but now access to the files are getting slower that I need to defrag. I would like to defrag the server and hope there's a way to restore my Shadow Copy snapshot using Backup Exec 11d.

Thanks in advance!
