The best way to do this is to Export your chart of accounts. File Utilities Export Lists (IIF files) and select Chart of Accounts.

Close the file and make a New Company file. Go through the setup and then at an appropriate point, File Utilities Import IIF Files and point to your file.

Now you have a brand new Company File with your Chart of Accounts.

The above is the way to do what you want because there is no practical way to delete everything cleanly.
