What is the antonym of the adjective "sample" (example/specimen) besides "whole"? I'd like to replace "non-sample" in the following sentence:
I saved my sample code but accidentally deleted my non-sample project.

In a similar context, I would tend to use actual or real:
These contrast well with example, sample, mock, or pseudo-, but sound best when you're expressing that contrast on a particular noun (sample code…actual code); it sounds awkward if the distinction isn't stressed (sample code…actual project).
maybe you are looking for test vs. control groups? or experimental sample vs. control sample?
