A problem with a very slow "drop database"

Hi all, I'm using Mysql to create a very big db. I'm doing a set of attempts with different tables to verify what is the fast way I could do some query.
To do this I have to use drop to delete inefficient constructions I've done.
but when I do this it happen that process takes a long long time.

I've been searching the web to understand what happens and seen that maybe can be the file system type that implies a slowness. One of the possible different ways is to erase single tables and then all the database.

the problem is that I have two very big databases and i've just used drop database for each of them. The processes started and continued for a lot of hours. I wasn't understanding and then killed the process by using Ctrl-C.

Now databases still exists in the mysql system and i don't know if my processes are still running or not and how can I erase them.

Please someone help me!
