    You need to move the contents (tables, indexes) from upgrade table spaces to another table space. Then you can drop them. 80 GB is the table space allocation on the disk, but actual data will be less. Hope this will help you. I suggest NOT to drop any tables or indexes instead move them to the another table space.

    Query to check the contents of upgrade tablespace:

    SQL> select owner, table_name from dba_tables where tablespace_name="<tablespacename_upgrade>";

    SQL> select owner, index_name from dba_indexes where tablespace_name="<tablespacename_upgrade>";

    Query for moving the all contents reported above to target tablespace:

    SQL> alter table “<owner>”.”<table_name>” move tablespace “<tablespace_name_target>”;

    SQL> alter index “<owner>”.”<index_name>” rebuild tablespace “<tablespace_name_target>”;

    Execute both "select" queries above to check the move (result should be "no rows selected")

    Now you can drop the upgrade tablespace using BRTOOLS. As you are only moving the tables and indexes to another table space, so this will be safe and no impact on your SAP system.

      Hi Prithvi,

      Thanks sharing the detail

      I went through as per above note and found another note 1715052 - Tablespace cannot be deleted after upgrade

      And taking output as per command

      select table_name from dba_tables where tablespace_name='PSAPSR3701X';












      9 rows selected.

      select index_name from dba_indexes where tablespace_name='PSAPSR3701X';











      8 rows selected.

      But There is 2 challenge for me

      1) I Upgraded SP in 2014 then PSAPSR3701X table created now again i upgraded sp then PSAPSR3701XX so can I drop table PSAPSR3701X or not as per above output or it will impact our sap system.

      Because both table space used near about 200 GB

      2) Need help before dropping this table what pre-requiste I need to check or give me some step step guide.

      Thanks in Advance.
