    User the version management to backup the universes and reports. Why do you want to delete the universes, simply remove the access to the all the users, instead of deleting.

    As many has written before, then Promotion Management is the *new* way forward of taking backup of the individual objects on ones BI Platform. That would give you the possibility to back up dependencies.

    You could also use cleaner and smother 3rd party solutions like 360 Plus from GB&SMITH.

    One small tip though, if you haven’t already, then get the BI Platform Support Tool.
    It has many nice features; one is a report where you can see which reports are using which universe (as well as all the orphaned ones)

    Instead of deleting why not move the universe & reports in backup folder where others users can not access.not very sure if you delete the universe then reports work again as universe CUID will change. if you wants to try first use the promotion management to backup universe and reports in BIAR files.
