  • Hi,

    Yes it should be gone from SharePoint profiles once you run profile import.

    But if you still them in SharePoint site use following command 

    stsadm -o sync -listolddatabases <days>

    It will show you results with OLD DB and GUIDs, then run another command

    stsadm -o sync -deleteolddatabases <days>

    after that run

    stsadm -o sync
