How to move back Artboards detaching from Pasteboard elements

Hello,

 

I accidently moved all artboards (200+) in a project and closed the document. There were many elements outside of artboards in Pastboard - like section titles, separation elements, components, alerts, menues, working and in design elements, etc. After accident move of artboards many of elements outside artboards appeared in Artboards. Now artboards look like a mess containing non relevant elements.

 

I looked at file version history and found the version where the problem was caused. But I can't revert to that version, because there is no such feature  in XD. And if I open the history version in new window, the only option is to save it as new file.

 

As this is active and big project there are several links generated from the project, and shared in many places. And when I tell many, I mean Many. So all developers using the links which are provided in their task tickets. Other links are shared with clients for demos. Etc.

 

I tried selecting all and copieng from previous version and pasting to the main file but first everething were pasted without artboards but as some Canvas. Then I decided to go to Artboars list of old version and copied only artborads (not Pastboard elements which are outside of artbords). This brought artbords but in some strange state - when I open Prototype no any wires / links are shown between artboards, but when I open Share all artboards are shown selected. I afraid updating the link in such weired behavior. So that was not much different than saving new file from history version.

 

So I am in big trouble and want to ask if anyone had similar problem, and if there is any other trick that you can think of that will allow to revert to previous version keeping the Prototypes and Links? 

 

Thanks

My file is in CC, and as I stated in my first message I can access file history.

But how you use the file history to restore damadged artboards and keep all prototyes and links unchanged?
