A quick answer, you cannot, you can just Backup the ENTIRE/WHOLE vDR Repository to tape or restore the ENTIRE  vDR Repository from tape.

only vDR can recover VMs from the vDR Repository.

So if you have a need to backup to tape daily, just backup the entire vDR Repository from your network share for disaster recovery.
