I'm afraid there's no easy reliable way at the moment. See this feature 


There is a "kind of" restore to point in time feature in Boxi, to the best 
approximation that I could do with the current store format, but Boxi is 
not complete and there's absolutely no guarantee that it will restore your 
data or not bite your dog.

Cheers, Chris.
