I have Backup Exec IMG files taking up space that are affecting backup functionality, and I'm thinking these should be getting deleted past a certain time, ie, 1 - 2 months retention. Need a recommendation and advise on where to configure the retention period for this sort of option, and at what point in time is it safe to delete this type of file.

Have you configured any setting to delete the old images during configuring backup task?
If yes and it wont work recreate the backup task and delete old task to new directory. You can later delete old image directory with images manually.
