Use Archiving:
One way to do it is to use Archiving.
This way you will get information about the deleted items into XML-files.
Use archiving views to define what items to delete.

Use Delete:
List all the items you want to delete in a view. Select all items listed, and then Delete.
Repeat this for all item types you want to delete.

Use SQL:
This is the fastest way to delete ALL items!
Connect directly to the database, and execute commands like this:
delete from ITSM_INCIDENTS;

You can add a "where" conditions if you want to control what items to delete.

If you go with deleting records directly, make sure you know what you're doing. You might end up with your database in a unsupportable and more importantly... unusable state and render your support contract with HP invalid.
