Basically, Hardly.

DROP DATABASE drops all tables in the database and deletes the database.

now for the undelete part,  it will be quite hard to undelete the files.

There's a full tutorial on how to undelete EXT3 (http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/howto/undelete_ext3.html)

if you manage to recover the files, do a recover from file to your mysql server.

Adding to the above, even if you can recover the underlying files (and remember you don't have a direct relationship between files and databases - depending on your Sybase product, databases are defined on devices or dbspaces, and you have files for those)... that's still no guarantee you'll get the database back.

File system buffering may mean the underlying files are not what the database engine is looking for.

If you don't have database backups then it's pretty much gone. If your last backup is from three weeks ago then

1) that's what you can restore to, and
2) time to start running more frequent backups.
