Relationship between Bags and BagMRU keys

I'd like to able to delete some of the Bags keys, but I don't want to have to delete the entire key so I don't lose all my custom folder views. I've never been able to find any advice other than to delete the whole key, can anyone tell me how the Bags and BagsMRU keys relate, like what specific keys are being referenced in BagsMRU, because they're not numbered the same as the Bags keys.

I ended up just clearing them again, but I'd still really like to know how to interpret the BagMRU key. If I deleted just some of the Bag keys would the data in the BagMRU key end up messing up any new Bag keys?

Let me try to explain it differently, I'd like to delete some of the bags keys because the more I have the slower new folders open. All I've ever found is how to completely delete all custom folder views, how I can just delete some of them without deleting all of them?

I'm not going to get any help on this, am I? Is it because it involves editing the registry? It seems like it's almost impossible to get help about that.

It would help if you were to specify exactly where you found these keys.

The ShellBag information comprises two main registry keys, BagMRU and Bags. The BagMRU key stores folder names and records folder paths by creating the similar tree structure. The Bags key stores the view preferences such as the window size, location and view mode. The BagMRU key itself represents the Desktop.

I want to know how to delete the Bags entries selectively, rather than deleting the whole Bags key.

They're in a few places, but only seem to be written in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell, which I believe are linked.

"The BagMRU is the database of folders which are currently stored." That does help me! How do I edit BagMRU to reflect if I delete some of the Bags keys? I don't want to have to always delete the whole key when it gets too full, so at least some of my custom folder views are retained.
