Cannot be done I am afraid.

It makes no difference if the images is on tape or disk - the way NBU works and the structure of the catalog makes this impossible.

This has been asked previously, unfortunately the answer is still the same.

Only option, is to rerun the backup and skip the file in question, or, restore the image to an alternate location, delete the file and then back it up again.
