So you are going to clear out the entries in the MFT how?

You can do several things to the MFT, the best way to shrink it is ,
wipe the disk and reinstall.

If www.google.com doesn't work for you then try the FAQs, White papers
most likely to be found on sites like Paragon www.paragon-gmbh.com/ ,
Diskeeper www.diskeeper.com or any of the other disk defrag utility
sites, www.sysinternals.com and Microsoft KB / MSDN would also be worth
a look, not forgetting www.ntfs.com

There are some registry entries for setting the size of the MFT.

Is there a utility available that will easily permit the reduction in
size of the Master File Table? Win XP will allow it to grow but there is
no reduction when needed.
