There are 2 ways to do this in TSVN. You can reverse changes most easily
by doing it one revision at time, if there are only a few revisions to

Show the revision log for the top level folder
Right click on the highest revision (172)
Select 'Revert changes from this revision'
Repeat for the previous revision (171)
Commit your changes.
r173 should now be the same as r170

Of course if there were lots of revisions to change, that would be very
tedious. The other approach is to use merging, which is what the
previous method does behind the scenes.

Start the merge dialog from your top level WC folder.
In the 'from revision' enter the URL corresponding to that folder (which
I think is the default)
Enter the last bad revision (172)
In the 'to revision', check the 'Use "From:" URL' box
Enter the last good revision (170)
Click on merge
Commit your changes

Merging is a bit tricky to understand, but there is a good description
in the online version of the SVN book.
