Is this a locally-managed tablespace?I would assume in 10g, but just
thought I'd ask the obvious. Maybe I've worked with users too much.

In a 3 TB TEST Database in 10gR2, a 700 GB Table needs to be DROPPED.

This Table is present in a Unique Tablespace.

Which of the following Options is Most Advisable w.r.t. performance,
speed & ease of Drop:-

1) DROP the Respective Tablespace including contents

2) Truncate the Table -> Drop the Table

3) Drop the Table

4) Some Other Option?

Thanks indeed
