What exactly was the folder that was left in place? Dropping a keyspace does not physically delete the data immediately.

Hi ,


I am using Cassandra .70, I have dropped a sample keyspace using command “drop keyspace <sample>”

Command executed successfully but when I checked key space folder still exists there,

Is there any other process to delete data from file system or Cassandra does it automatically??


Thanks in advance J
