We had a table named A with millions of rows occupying more space. We truncated the table and found that OS space - (Data file) not released after truncation of this table. Still it occupies the space.

How to release the space?

oracle version :

Thanks and Regards,

Expected behavior.
You need to resize the datafile ( if you are in dire need to get space).
Search the forum/docs/google for exact procedures.
