I created a few test profiles and I need to remove them because, if selected, they could cause a lot of problems with my system. There isn't a built in feature to remove the profiles with Magmi and I cannot find any records of the profiles in the database. How can I remove Magmi profiles?

Got it! To delete a Magmi profile, log into ftp and navigate to magmi/conf. The profiles are separated into sub directories. You'll just need to delete the sub-directories of the profiles that need to be removed.

Note: Always a good idea to backup prior to doing this!

You may need to change your ownership / permissions in order to have access to delete these directories. I actually backed up the entire conf directory, changed the conf permissions to 777 (files and sub-directories too), then deleted the entire conf directory and uploaded a new one without the profiles.
