Hi,

In some Operating systems (especially windows), the datafile does not get physically deleted, enventhough you specify including contents and datafiles. If you need to recreate a datafile with the same name, a classical workaround is to add the reuse keyword in your create tablespace statement.

Best regards,

Emmanuel

Note that this no more exist in the current version and patchset.
And in the other ones, if you restart the database as mentioned, the files can be deleted.
