I have some apex classes that are no longer needed. I removed all of the code from the files and just left the declaration. There does not seem to be a way to delete the code files that I can find but that is a separate issue.
When I look at code coverage in sandbox Developer Console I see things like (0/806), (0,498), etc... for these files. This is bringing by code coverage down significantly such that I can not deploy to production.
How can I get salesforce to count these as 1 or 2 lines/blocks of code instead of hundreds. I have seen posts saying to clear coverage and test data. I have deleted Test History. The instructions usually point to menus and commands that are not in the current version of Salesforce (I never worked with earlier versions).
I am using Sublime Text with Mavens Mate for my IDE.
I need to deploy big fixes that I have made and I am stuck. Any ideas?
