Edit A BKF file

Is there a way that doesn't involve an act of God or Congress to remove one of the copies of my C:\ tree in a backup file?

What exactly are you talking about?  If it's been backed up and you don't want it in the file any more, restore the backup and the reback it up.  I've otherwise never heard of a way where you otherwise edit a backup file.

actually... I backed it up twice and there are two occurances of the entire drive about 5 days apart.  I only want to keep the most recent copy of the drive.  I would also prune a few files out if I could.

If there are two occurances 5 days apart, then you have two separate bkf files.  Are you referring to the "trees" shown on the "Restore and Manage Media" tab of NTBackup?  If so, you'll note that each of those has a full file name with a (1), (2), etc in it.  Just locate the file you want to delete and delete it.  If you want to keep a lesser amount of backups of your system, you can modify the backup task to keep less.
