How do I delete a big space (over 800 pages)?


Recently I've been testing the Confluence API to create spaces, pages, and add attachments. as a result I've got spaces that have accumulated over 800 pages, and if I try to delete a space it seems to get stuck.
I've been waiting for over an hour and a half in the hope for it to delete a space since it seemed like the space was getting deleted page by page (or I thought so), as the loading page is sending requests every few seconds. But the loading page has sent over 2000 requests, and I'm confident the space "only" contained about 850 pages, it doesn't seem to work this way either.

Is it possible to still remove these spaces?
Thank you in advance!

If I reload the page, it says there aren't any tasks running
