 Hi @johnbillion , @swissspidy ,

 It actually doesn't depend on the installed plugin. Sorry I wrote the
 description in a way which mislead you. I have uploaded some screenshots
 showing the problem of data deletion and export. In summary the problem
 can be reproduced by following-

 1. Register a new user (say it is dummyuser). I tried with subscriber
 role, but I believe the problem is not related to the user role. While
 registering I provided first name and lastname, also email and password.
 2. Later from the tools -> export personal data, I have exported the data
 related to dummyuser.
 3. Then I make a request to delete data for this user. And in the console,
 it says "No Personal Data is found for this user".
 4. Again, I make a export request for dummyuser.
 5. It generated a export.json file which contains the same data as before
 the deletion.

 To me, it seems like the data deletion in the WordPress is not working as
 it supposed to be. May be you can try to follow the above step to re-
 create the problem. If you are not able to re-produce it let me know.

 Note that, during the whole process, I haven't installed/activated any
 other plugins/themes.

 Hi @paapst ,

 Thanks for letting us know that you were able to reproduce the problem.
