I have a bunch of .v2i image files created by PowerQuest Drive Image and Symantec.  These image files have a bunch of stuff in them I don't need.  Is there a utility that can delete files within a .v2i file?

I've tried the following:
Ghost Explorer
PowerQuest Backup Image Browser

No you can't delete files from within images. You could restore the image, then delete whatever isn't needed, and then create a new image.

Restoring these images, deleting the unneeded files, and then re-imaging isn't an option.  I am still looking for a .v2i file editor.

There is no such editor. There can be such options for other imaging products though. Shadowprotect has such an option (checkout "update backup images"). Apart from that it is the fastest such product on the market, and includes the universal restore in it's base product. It can handle v2i files, but I don't think it'll be able to edit them.

A v2i image editor capable of deleting/modifying files within an image does not exist.
