    DO NOT USE THIS PLUGIN

    This plugin deletes all WPMS sites, settings, data (including non-WP tables) when you select "Delete Demo Data".

    No demo data plugin should delete data it did not create.

    As long as this plugin deletes your data as well as its own, don't use it.

    The plugin does exactly what it says and should ONLY be used during site development when you have only data you can lose.

    Obviously this isn't clear enough, I'll make it much more obvious in the next version.

    I wish I would have read this prior to installing this plugin! No where on the plugin site or near the delete data button does is state clearly that all site data will be deleted including pages!

    I don't need to keep member or post data while in develpment but while designing the site, I would like to keep the custom pages that I spent two weeks developing. They are part of the site structure not just demo data.

    No clue why you would allow the plugin to delete data that it did not create.

    Just in case this happens to anyone else...

    I was able to do a system restore of the MySQL database by going to my hosting site and accessing the MySQL database for my wordpress install. Even though I had not yet done a database backup, the system does an automatic backup periodically and I was able to restore the database from one hour prior. It restored all of my site content that was deleted by the plugin. Thank goodness! Hope this helps anyone that runs into the same issue!
