If I extract data from salesforce for an object using dataloader.io or dataloader, would it remove data too for that object from salesforce.

    Not unless you delete it. – Rao Feb 10 '17 at 18:33
  • I thought the same thing when I first started, I simply did a small test and found out myself..... – Eric Feb 10 '17 at 18:39

No, you would have to do a delete. Extract with Dataloader is just a dump to a csv. So if you just do an export and don't then do a delete you're fine.

  • If I use data management and use export for a custom object including attachmnets will it delete data from salesforce – kunal gupta Feb 10 '17 at 21:43
  • I don't know of anyway to delete data from Salesforce, other than expressly clicking delete or running a delete in apex or a delete with any data integration tool. I've never heard of just an export deleting data. – user4978 Feb 14 '17 at 16:52
