How to clear an entire repository, deleting all user built reports, folders, etc and start fresh?


I am trying to figure out the best way to clear my repository on my test 4.2 server and start from scratch.

I've migrated a bunch of content from our 4.1 system, but I want to remove all of that and start fresh again.

I do not want to lose CMC configurations (FRS directories, custom request ports, etc), I just want to drop all of the reports/dashboards, etc.

I do not want to drop the built in samples, if possible.

I don't want to delete the FRS directory straight away because I understand that there are system files in there that should not be deleted, and are created by default as part of the install.

Has anyone attempted this and/or have scripts for the CMS database, and then maybe subsequently run a REPOSCAN to clean up the FRS?

Thank you for your input.
