Deleting A Windows Image Backup

I have a windows image backup which is taking up 60gb. I need to delete it but i dont know if its safe to just delete normally.
Could anyone give a step by step tutorial on how to delete it.

Same thing for the 'windows.old' folder would really help

The image is just a file and can be deleted like any old file. Best is to delete the whole 'WindowsImageBackup' folder.
