After all the data tables, views, triggers, stored procedures, user-defined functions, and macros have been deleted from a database, the structure of the emptied database remains intact, as if its CREATE statement had just been performed, and it can be used in a subsequent restore operation. The DELETE DATABASE statements is used when a database has been only partially restored and is not in a usable state.
