Hi Feroz, it is not possible to delete reports using dataloader, you can only extract reports data through Dataloader. The report object is a ReadOnly object if accessed by Dataloader or any other api tool.

You can use the inbuilt Mass Delete Report option from the setup menu  or  use either eclipse or some other IDE's to delete the reports in mass.

HI Feroz 

Through eclipse you can delete the reports or from the setup if it is soo many. Put all those reports in a folder and delete that folder. 

Thanks

Hi Sultan, 

Now It is possible to delete reports using Data Loader and Workbench.

Delete private reports and folders in Data Loader
Note: When running the delete operation in Data Loader, the 'Report' object is not visible.  The steps to do this in Data Loader should be as follows:
1. Select Delete then log in.
2. Select any object from the 'Step 2: Select data objects' list.   (Please note, the Report object will not be visible. Data Loader will only check the ID, and will not check which object this is running against, so it doesn't matter which object is selected.)
3. Click Browse then select your CSV file.  Map the ID field.
4. When prompted, click OK if the number of records to be deleted is correct.
5. Click Create or Edit a Map.
6. Drag the ID field down to the ID row then click OK.
7. Click Next then select Browse to select the location of your success and error files.
8. Click Finish.
9. Click Yes at each prompt to proceed with the delete operation.
