Carl Steinbach updated HIVE-3134:

    Component/s: Metastore
> Drop table/index/database can result in orphaned locations

>                 URL:
>             Project: Hive
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Metastore

> Today when a managed table has a partition with a location which is not a subdirectory
of the table's location, when the table is dropped the partition's data is not deleted from
HDFS, resulting in an orphaned directory (the data exists but nothing points to it).
> The same applies to dropping a database with cascade and a table has a location outside
the database.
> I think it is safe to assume managed tables/partitions own the directories they point
to, so we should clean these up.
