I have a db2 9.7 database that was converted from db2 9.5 on an AIX P7AIX platform. I'm using Enterprise edition. I dropped a large table that contained an XML column. I did not expect to see the database size shrink because the tablespace "reclaimable space" flags were not set but yet it was reduced by almost 49 GB. Can anyone explain why I had a reduction in the database size? The table resided in the TSPACE_32K tablespace.
