They're in the database.  It would seem as if you dropped/recreated the
wrong database.

For general/ongoing maintenance, Bacula will automagically clear out those
terminated jobs when they reach their retention time, assuming autoprune
is enabled.  Occasionally, messing about with the configuration will cause
Bacula to end up with jobs, files, etc that it can't prune because it
no longer has configuration information on how to prune them.  In that
case, run Bacula's dbcheck program to clean those up.

If you continue to have trouble, I recommend subscribing to the bacula-users
mailing list and asking future questions there.  They're a pretty helpful
