Why don't you use plain SQL to delete the data? If WHERE covers a full partition it will be a FastPath Delete like DELETE ALL.

It didn't change, because the DELETE/INSERT INTO option is only valid if rows don't fit in any remaining partition. And the NO RANGE nicely
covers those rows.
This is one of the reasons why you should avoid NO RANGE :-)
