exactly, when using "VDPAdmin >> Administration >> VCS Management >> Databases >> Import", you are always checking out the latest revision from the VCS.
But, after that, you can right click on your database, select "check out", select "Database" checkbox, and then choose the revision you want. When checkout operation ends, the admin tool is going to show a window with the list of elements removed (if any). After accepting the dialog, the elements tree will show, marked with a gray icon, the elements removed (you will have to check-in again your database in order to delete them from the HEAD).
One note regarding checking to an older revision: now, if you have local changes, they will be preserved; so, be sure you don't have local changes before restoring the old revision.
Did you try using this approach?
