How to remove resources and drop the Database without uninstalling and reinstalling the Report Server?

Platform: Report Platform |
Control: Report Server

At any time, you can remove the resources that were created in the Report Server and drop the Report Server database without uninstalling the Report Server setup from the Control Panel.

By doing this, you can remove the test reports that you have created for evaluating the Report Server or can re-configure the Report Server with SQLCE or SQL Server.

Report Server is deployed in the below location by default.

{Windows_Drive}\Syncfusion\Report Server\ReportServer.web\

For example, C:\Syncfusion\Report Server\ReportServer.web\

We have shipped a utility with the Syncfusion Report Server application in the below location.
