In MongoDB, we can manually drop a database to delete the associated data files of the current database using dropDatabase command.
- Type the command use DATABASE_NAME in the command prompt to create a new database or to select the already created database with the respective name.
For Example: use Hellodb
- Type the command dropDatabase() in the command prompt to delete the selected database.
- Type the command show dbs in the command prompt to check the database list.
- If no database is selected the dropDatabase() command will delete the default “test” database.
