Re: Recover dropped database

Hi Mark,

2 possibilities come to my mind:

1. If they are MyISAM tables try to do a file system un-delete.
2. If they are InnoDB afaik the drop table does just set a deleted flag in the data dictionary of innodb.

So if you do, close in time, an un-delete (file system) or a un-delete (I have to figure out how) in InnoDB the tables could probably be recovered.

Best regards,
