Is there a way to remove sample data in Magento2 without uninstalling/re-installing Magento?

I want this because I changed settings in my backend that I don't want to be removed.

bin/magento sampledata:remove to completely remove sample data. bin/magento sampledata:reset is used to update sample data before updating Magento application.

+1 for taking backup before doing so. bin/magento setup:backup --db creates a backup for the database.

run this in the console bin/magento sampledata:reset.
And backup your db in case I'm wrong.


Use this command on command line:

bin/magento sampledata:remove
