Windows 7: Managing a backup from a previous image (eg. deleting system image)

Managing a backup from a previous image (eg. deleting system image)

Hello,

Before I re-imaged my laptop, I made sure to do a backup of personal files + a system image in case things went wrong.

The imaging was successful, and now, the new Windows 7 OS recognizes the old backup as a backup from another computer (as it should).

However, is it possible to manage this old backup? (manage => edit)

Now that I don't need the old system image, I would prefer to get rid of it ... plus, I created a backup for my current image so there's quite a bit of space used by backup files..

Thanks

Should be able to just delete it, but more detail is needed for the best answer.

hmm... i just deleted the folder that contained everything pertaining to the image backup...

that might have done the trick as i can still backup the old files / folders..

thanks.
