ShowLog dialog and revert

I am a new user of TSVN, using it with VS 2008 on an XP SP3 system. I had
made some changes to a single file. I needed to revert this file back about
4 revisions. I went into the Show Log dialog and unfortunately selected
"Revert to this revision". To my horror, it reverted the entire repo to the
selected revision. Evidently I should have selected "Revert changes from
this revision".

 

My corrective approach was to shut down svnserve and restore the previous
night's backup. But there must be a more effective way to recover from this
poor choice of "reverts". Can anyone point me in that direction?

 

Thanks, Lars
