delete backup disk image on ext.HDD

I made a backup image a couple of weeks ago using Paragon Backup & Recovery ,but since that time I have deleted about 80GB of files.
I don't want those files put back on my C drive if I need to do a restore from image.So I want to start fresh with a clean image and then do my scheduled differential back ups.
I can't remember how to wipe the info off the ext.Can't find an answer in the Paragon program.
Any suggestions?

Thanks for the warning.

I was going to try Paragon, but if you can't simply navigate to an image in Windows Explorer and delete it like you would delete any other file, who needs it?

Actually you can.I just didn't know it.So I just went there and my image is where you stated.That was simple,and that's why I say "I'm always learning"

Thanks for that answer.
