Does deleting a Space delete drafts, attachments and versions for that Space?

I've seen conflicting answers on this from various online sources. If I delete a Space, does it remove all Drafts, Attachments and Page Versions for that Space?

I can confirm it at the very least deletes attachments. I tried this on a local instance and can confirm the space on disk shrinked by the same amount as the size of the attachment I added to a page.


There is also a nice warning stating that the action of deleting a space is not recoverable. I can't however say with 100% accuracy if all traces of page versions and page drafts are removed though.

Maybe someone with more knowledge of recovering Confluence spaces can shed some light.
