Bankruptcy does not delete any of the accounts you had because those accounts were part of your credit history at the time of bankruptcy filing and will remain such for 7 years after.  And bankruptcy does not help your credit, but hurts it and you have to work hard to rebuild credit after it is over (2022).  All bankruptcy does is release you from the obligation to pay the debts you had, and that makes future creditors very reluctant to trust you again for a long time. You might want to read the articles here on bankruptcy to better understand why the effect on your current credit.
