i didn't get you!

in sql>
drop database (db-name) including datafiles;


Then I should manually delete the files from OS.

Please confirm if am doing it the right way.


Thank you,
Dirish

"drop database" does not exist.
Remove all the database files at OS level.

Not in 8.
Yes, you just have to rm the files and remove its entry in oratab if you added it.
You can use dbca to do this.
