drop table does not free up disk space
We have an (unbalanced) cluster where 2-3 nodes (out of a total of 10) are desperately running out of disk space (like 95-97% full in data partitions).
My question is why does a DROP TABLE not reduce the disk space utilization, even hours after dropping the table. This is a relatively large table (5 TB, out of an total license of 40TB).
I was under the impression that dropping a table freed up all disk storage resources associated with that table.
