I need to remove Your company and other demo data from an existing application without affecting the useful records. The other company data should remain intact only demo data should be removed.

Hi Sohail,

You should create new database without demo data instead removing demo data from existing database.

I just suggested you an option. There is not any module available to remove demo data. You need to delete it manually. It may happen that in some cases you can't delete demo data record because it is depend on some other record which is necessary.

@umer the only way I can see, is you can export data from your existing database and import them in new database which has no demo data installed.
