1) Delete keep the lock over each row where Truncate keeps the lock on table not on all the row.

2) Counter of the Identity column is reset in Truncate where it is not reset in Delete.

3) Trigger is not fired in Truncate where as trigger is fired in Delete.

4) In TRUNCATE we cannot rollback.

5) In DELETE we can rollback
