Hello,

Do you mean deleting all the posts? Just simply delete the forums and make them again on your admin panel.

Yes thats the only way. Delete the individual forums of your forum.

Hello,

The 'auto pruning' will just move your topics to the 'basket' of your forum and won't be deleted. You need to do it manually.
