The drop operation verifies that the user is empty, checks that the user does not own any other databases or users, drops the user, and adds the PERM and TEMPORARY space that the drop makes available to that of the immediate owner database or user.

After a user is dropped, it cannot be recovered by using the Dump and Restore utility unless it is restored.
