Various options depending on your exact requirements. From the man page:

     /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bprestore  [-A  |  -B]  [-drs]  [-F
          file_options]  [-K]  [-l  |  -H  |  -y]  [-r]  [-T] [-L
          progress_log [-en]] [-R rename_file]  [-C  client]  [-D
          client] [-S master_server] [-t policy_type] [-p policy]
          [-s   date]   [-e    date]    [-w    [hh:mm:ss]]    [-k
          "keyword_phrase"]  -f listfile | filenames [-cm] [-drs]
          [-md] [-td temp_dir] [-spsredir_server  hostname]  [-BR
          portal_name | teamsite_name] [copy -x]
