Hi egblue,

Open up Backup utility. If you have the wizard, choose to Restore File and Settings. Then, in the window, you'll see your backup. Right click and delete.

That will only delete the catalog.  Instead right click and choose "Catalog".
That should display the full path and filename of the backup.
You may then browse to that location and delete it.
