Is it possible roll back a PowerApps data source (CDS) to a point in time (PITR)?

When using PowerApps and the CDS, is it possible to roll-back the data to a point in time (PITR) without changing the version of the app itself? Someone (no names) deleted some data in December which was not discovered until later. We need to roll-back to correct the error and re-enter data from that point. Is there a function within CDS or PowerApps that I can use? Or, how can this be achieved?
Thank you.

Hi @_francois 

Go to admin.powerplatform.microsoft.com and click on Environments on the left. Select the environment you want to restore from the list. Then at the top click Backups > Restore or Manage. Select the date and time you want to restore from. I believe it goes back 28 days.

Note that restoring an environment will restore both the data, and any customisations to that point in time. There is no way to restore the data without the customisations

Thanks @SKH19 and @DavidJennaway  - I'll check to see if any customisations have been done since the date we want to rollback to before doing the restore.
