I ran a "PURGE TABLE" command on a table in the Recycle bin. It has now been running for 25 minutes and still going on. Is it normal for a purge to take that long?
Is it safe to cancel (I'm using SQL developer which has a cancel button)?

1 Answer 1


My database server was out of disk space, which caused the never-ending purging.
