Delete all content within a Space without deleting the space?

Hi all,

is it possible to delete all content within a Space (including attachments) without deleting the space?

Cheers,

Sebastian

We have a "Testspace" where users can test macros, editing and such kind of things. The space became very large and we have perfomance issues. I would like to delete all content without losing configuration things, like permissions (large instance).

Well at that point you either have to go one by one or use the api to go through the space and delete each page. You just can't delete the root page. Not sure if that's easier than just making a copy of the space settings and making a new space.

What would be the point?

You could just delete the whole space and then create a new space with the same name and spacekey. 

Unless there is some specific reason you can't delete the space?
