Now even I did delete all backup files in E: drive. But looks like that 160 gb system image still in my E: drive. Because when I check my E: drive properties I still missing 160 gb spaceso I think that system image still in there somewhere.

There is an excellent tutorialhere:

But if the problem is that you cannot se it, then, in Windows Explorer, open Tools - Folder Options - View, and make sure you have the options selcted for showing hidden files/folders, etc..
