DROP TABLESPACE(7)	PostgreSQL 9.6.3 Documentation	    DROP TABLESPACE(7)

NAME
       DROP_TABLESPACE - remove	a tablespace

SYNOPSIS
       DROP TABLESPACE [ IF EXISTS ] name

DESCRIPTION
       DROP TABLESPACE removes a tablespace from the system.

       A tablespace can	only be	dropped	by its owner or	a superuser. The
       tablespace must be empty	of all database	objects	before it can be
       dropped.	It is possible that objects in other databases might still
       reside in the tablespace	even if	no objects in the current database are
       using the tablespace. Also, if the tablespace is	listed in the
       temp_tablespaces	setting	of any active session, the DROP	might fail due
       to temporary files residing in the tablespace.

PARAMETERS
       IF EXISTS
	   Do not throw	an error if the	tablespace does	not exist. A notice is
	   issued in this case.

       name
	   The name of a tablespace.

NOTES
       DROP TABLESPACE cannot be executed inside a transaction block.

EXAMPLES
       To remove tablespace mystuff from the system:

	   DROP	TABLESPACE mystuff;

COMPATIBILITY
       DROP TABLESPACE is a PostgreSQL extension.
