The following two processes to physically reorg the FILEINFO file have been successfully tested and verified. 
                                                                         
1) Copy current FILEINFO to .NEW then Rename .NEW
This includes the following 3 steps:                                       
STEP01 - REPRO FILEINFO TO WORKFILE (BACKUP TO TAPE)                     
STEP02 - DEFINE NEW FILEINFO & REPRO CURRENT TO NEW                      
STEP03 - DELETE CURRENT FILEINFO & RENAME THE NEW TO CURRENT              
                                                                          
See attached the complete JCL for this method as file                    
  '1)BACKUP+REPRO_to_NEW+RENAME_to_current.txt'                          
                                                                         
2) Backup FILEINFO and Restore back from Tape  
This includes the following 3 steps:                                                  
STEP01 - REPRO FILEINFO TO WORKFILE (BACKUP TO TAPE)                      
STEP02 - DELETE CURRENT FILEINFO                                          
STEP03 - DEFINE FILEINFO AND REPRO FROM TAPE  

See attached the complete JCL for this method as file 

 '2)BACKUP+DELETE CURRENT+REPRO_from_tape.txt'        

               
Both JCL samples will work equally well.       
                                                                          
Note1:                                                                  
You need to specify a valid Volser in the VOLUMES(vvvvvv) parameter of    
the DEFINE, or remove that parameter if the allocation is done via SMS.   
                                                                          
Note2:                                                                     
As per INNOVATION DATA, the CREATE command in the USTOVRID DD             
is needed to provide the IAM options when defining the file.              
So please just leave that complete USTOVRID DD as it is in the provided   
sample JCL:                                                               
//USTOVRID   DD   *                                                       
CREATE DD=FILEINFO,B=2,PE=100,VARO=YES,REL=NO,PRO=YES                     
ACCESS DD=&ALLDD,INDEXSPACE=64BIT
