IndexDefrag And Shrink

Hi , Do the IndexDefrag truncate the unused space of the page ? Or need to shrink the db after perform the IndexDefrag command ? Thanks ,
No it will not and in order to truncate the space only TRUNCATE statement or SHRINK operation will take care. You will be wasting system resources if you perform a defrag and doing a shrink operatons, why not set a size to transaction log in order to continue the weekly defrag without any issues.
