NintexWorkflowHistory contains over 10 million items

Hi! I have a NintexWorkflowHistory list that contains 10746433 items. I do not have access to PowerShell (or anything in Central Admin) and the out of the box purge option I can access does not work. I am unable to view the items in the list to delete manually because it exceeds the threshold. How can I delete these items? Thank you!!

Thank you for your reply. That refers to the out of the box purge option I was referring to, it does not work for me  (I try to purge and it refreshes the page and does nothing). I've tried it with the filters as well.

You can still set up views even though you can’t access. If you know date ranges, you can set up a view based on created by if that amount is under the threshold. 

you can also try to export to access and filter and delete from there.
