When a disaster occurs, and you lose your replica volume for any datasource, you could re-seed the replica from the backed-up data you have in tape. This little script initializes replica from a tape recovery point. The parameters have to be customized for your environment first as given below.
Save the attached file as a .ps1 file and invoke through the DPM Management Shell.

is there any way to resync my replica volume in case i lost my OS in a disaster but I have the DPM database backed up and the replica volume?
Yes! That is possible, and you can find information under "Disaster Recovery" and "How to manually load the replica" sections in the online documentation found.
for the $dsname, what should we use if we have it stored on a san without a drive letter?
Is there any method to go for disk to disk to disk to tape? I have heard about this in a video but was not able to find any details about it.
