Quickest way to purge entire database

We have an Event Store that is full of junk streams we created while testing a migration script that’s under development. Now we just want to wipe the whole database and proceed with an empty database.

Is it safe just to stop Event Store, delete everything under /var/lib/eventstore, and restart the service? Would that destabilize it or would that work?

Nothing wrong with that. If it’s a node that’s part of a cluster, just make sure you clear those out too :slight_smile:

The last thing I did was delete the db folder and restart the service. The only drawback was that user accounts went with it.
