Topic: Using Findmypast - remove unlinked people

In developing my tree, I have gone made several errors and had to remove hundreds of people records.
I understand why there is limitation to remove only individuals and not branches, although I don't agree with it.
After 4 years of development, I have lots of people records in my tree which are not actually a part of the tree.
I know that it is assumed that they will be completely deleted when you realise you have made an error, but sometimes you are not quite sure.
The problem is that there is no easy way to identify people that are not a part of the tree so that they can be removed - reviewing 5000 people one at a time is a bit time consuming.
Does anyone know if there is a quicker way to identify unlinked people?
