Before issuing delete statement, did you run "pwd" to confirm whether you are really in the directory where you want to be? I belive you executed this command from parent directory of <DB_NAME> and it deleted all files from all database folders. If you were really in BDSTLP/datafiles/ directory, Oracle is not supposed to delete any other files/directories which are outside BDSTLP/datafiles/ directory.
