Exactly what it says. Changes committed in that revision are taken out,
removed, from your working copy.

Update item to revision means the selected item(s) at the revision
number supplied are retrieved from the repo and replace the currently
displayed selected item(s). Note. Any locally changed, uncommitted files
wil not be touched by Subversion.

If you haven't committed anything then you should be able to use "Check
for modifications" and select the changed files then right click and
select "Revert". Your working copy should then be at rev 2.

If you commmittted the changes, making the head rev 3 with the rev 1
stuff missing then revert changes from rev 3. and commit.
