This article describes how to reset the Microsoft SoftGrid Client cache file.
MORE INFORMATION
When you remove an application from SoftGrid Client Management, the application is removed from the SoftGrid Client cache. However, the size of the cache file does not decrease. You may have to recover disk space by manually reducing the size of the cache file.

You can do this by using the following method. This method removes all the application data from the SoftGrid Client cache. Therefore, the size of the cache is reduced to zero. However, the applications remain listed in SoftGrid Client Management. Additionally, the user settings remain intact. Therefore, the applications are loaded the next time that the application starts.
