If you have done multiple imports without clearing the database then everything except users will be duplicated.

Some important points to note related to importing are:
  • Repeating the import process will result in duplicated content, including attachments and avatars. Users however will not be duplicated, due to the constraint related to user names.
  • If multiple imports are performed and URLs are redirected, only the last import will have working redirects unless the import log data is archived.
  • To completely remove any data related to an import, in order to do it again for example, the original XenForo database must be restored and all avatars and attachments must be deleted from the /data and /internal_data directories.

There is no easy way to remove duplicate content.
