Revert to this revision will make the file in your working copy identical to
what it contained in that revision (it 'undoes' all changes made to the file
since that revision.

Revert changes from this revision will only undo the changes that were done
in that specific revision. Changes to the file from later revisions will
remain in the file.

You 'show log' on the folder that contains all files you are interested in.
From that dialog you can determine what wat modified in each file and then
take appropriate action.
