Hello Mayank,

As per the MySQL documentation, TRUNCATE works by DROPping the table and re-creating it as blank, which is apparently faster than deleting rows one by one. Then, it causes an implicit commit, thus it cannot rolled back.

Thanks for sharing this piece of information with the Community!

Carl said it all. TRUNCATE works by droping the table and re-creating it as blank and cannot be rolled back.

Hope this helps.
