Exchange 2010 re-seed database

We have a primary site and a DR site. Exchange2010 is on primary site replicating traffic to DR Exchange. The primary exchange server was down for 2 days and we are operating from our DR exchange server.
Today we restore the primary exchange server and since the database its 2 days old we want to reseed From the DR exchange Server.
My question is if I can reseed only the 2 missing days and not the full database since its 500GB and the line between 2 sites its only 20 MB and its going to take for ever.

Thank you

I don't see such option available. Exchange would automatically take care what need to be reseeded.

You will have to reseed, but you have another problem. I see you are running two different versions of Exchange. The DR site is an older version. I would suggest you upgrade to the same level before reseeding.
