Calculating Opportunity Amount Differently

Need to delete 35,000,000 records from an object containing 49,000,000 records.  What is the best method to accomplish this? 



Hi Max,

The best way to delete these many records use Dataloader or Jitterbit Dataloader.

Dataloader times out during the extract process even if using bulk API.

You can use two options


    1) Apex dataloader with "Bulk Api" option enabled.


    2) Use Workbench (https://workbench.developerforce.com/login.php)



for(int i = 0 ; i < 35million; i++)
Click on the appropriate record, press delete.

For that you need to fetch record from Databse using SOQL ( limit 50,000 records) so we should use Data loader which user batch internally.
