I have a table partitioned by month starting at Jan 2001 to present. I truncated the first five partitions. There are no records in partitions Jan. 2001 through May 2001. I have a local index on the date which is the partition range key. The initial and next on the index is 52K. When I look at how much space each local index is taking on their tablespace it does not make sense. If the partition has zero records the partitioned index for that month should only take 52K but it is still at where it was before it was partitioned. What is going on?
