When Solr starts, it navigates the entire solr home and tries to 
activate any cores that it locates there.  This is a process called 
"Core Discovery."

If Solr is running in cloud mode (with zookeeper), it compares the cores 
that it finds with the information in zookeeper.  If ZK database doesn't 
contain a collection referencing a core, the core will be deleted.  See 
this issue:

If you're not running in cloud mode, then there's no zookeeper and no 
central database to compare to, so Solr should not delete anything.
