Data management - All info stored online?

Hi,

I've used SSI Web 8 to create an online survey (including a ACA conjoint). I've created this survey beginning from an old survey on a different topic.

When downloading the data of the new survey, I'm encountering the issue that the old data is still on the SSI Web survey, giving a box with the following options:
- Overwrite existing respondent data with new respondent data
- Accumulate respondent with new respondent number
- Combine existing respondent data with new respondent data
- Skip the respondent

If I only need the data of the new survey, which option should I select? Furthermore, can I safely remove all the data in SSI Web without removing the current survey results and then make a new download of the data?

Thank you for your response,

You can safely remove all the data in the DataManagement Area or deleting the .db3 file in the study folder to remove all existing data.  Then downloading the data from your current study will be fresh and not conflict with any existing records.
