I have  tried "Clear all files", but that command doesn't have any  
impact on  the Slot info. I guess I could delete the Slots after  
creating the  Datafile, but that wouldn't clear the disk space, would  it?

My understanding is that once the disc space it allocated you cannot  clear 
it - it will reuse the space for the same file type as long as the new  
record is shorter or the same length as the one it is replacing.
