Backing up articles

I'd like to backup articles from my Joomla instance and import them once I did a clean install. The upgrade from Joomla 3 to 4 left some "dirt bit" laying around and will be much easier to just start from scratch (without rewritting all the different articles).
Does someone knows which table I need to backup.

I can surely see the ones related to categories and articles, something else I'm missing ?

#__fields_values, #__contentitem_tag_map, #__content_types, #__associations,, #__assets. I'm not sure about ucm tables.

I've tried this and I only get the categories imported, the articles (content) is all missing.

Got a clue ?

Because I do see the content inside the database.

Нou forgot about #__categories, #__content, #__content_frontpage, #__content_rating

And if you want to cleanup some categories and articles(delete them) you should remember that the #__assets table store their data and access rights too. Do delete them from admin panel but not directly from database.
