    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.
