Is there a way to restore a project in RTC/RRC to a previous point?

I was wondering if there was a way to restore a project to a previous point.  For example, let's say that you have a project that the data has been corrupted for some reason.  Can I restore the project to a previously know "good point"?

I would expect this is possible at the repository level. Are you asking about restoring just one project within a repository?

I know that we can use the database backups that we have to restore to a previous state.  I should have asked a more clear and precise question.  So long response even longer.... I am asking if there is a way to restore only one project with in a repository.  Thanks for helping me clarify.

 Cory, there is no way to do this at the project level.

Will this be possible (may be in the future, if not now), with the VVC functionality?
For example, I roll back to a particular workspace for the entire repository, so all artifacts get to the state there were in that particular workspace

It depends on what was mean by "project".   VVC is just a versioning system (like RTC-SCM, ClearCase, GIT, etc.)   If it means "project area", then VVC does not help, since the project area has many artifacts that are not under version control.   If it means "a set of artifacts in a workspace", then yes, VVC will allow you to roll that workspace back to some earlier baselined state (just as RTC-SCM, ClearCase, GIT, etc. let you roll back the artifacts under version control to some earlier baselined state).
