Or we can use drop table <tablename> purge;
  Which will make sure that Drop is working the way it used to work earlier 
means no recyclebin

    One of the quickest way to shut down a production application is to have 
two screens before you, one for test, one for production. Enter the drop table 
command into the wrong screen. The second easiest is to have a script lying 
about which conveniently begins with DROP TABLE, followed by CREATE TABLE. Have 
that executed at the wrong time on the wrong system, and catastrophe ensues. I 
have usually exported the small static tables weekly just to be able to recover 
from this problem. 
  But I can see this can be frustrating when working with large tables because 
an additional step is required in order to release the space.
