Norton Backup used all of free space

I have instigated a backup using a hard drive but the Norton Backup file has now filled all space on the drive. I need to delete the Norton backup file but when I do so, it tells me I have no admin rights although I am the only admin. I have tried opening the backup file but get the same message. I just want to clear the backup file to clear some disk space and I ma not bothered about not having the backup.

Open Windows Explorer and on the left pane, click on This PC or My Computer depending on your operating system version. Then click double click on Norton Backup Drive in the right pane. It may take a while for the list to populate, so be patient. From the list that comes up, you can right click on any files or folders you wish to remove and click Delete.

Thanks for your response. However, the Norton Backup folder is on a removable hard drive and has taken up all the space. I have tried your suggested method but that applies to the PC system, not the removable drive. It gave an option to delete on Drive G but when I tried this nothing cleared on Drive G. Still stuck with a full removable drive because of Norton Backup.

It should not matter where the drive is located. I have used external drives and network drives on my server. And I have been able to delete any drives and backup sets. 

You should not be looking directly in your G drive. See the Norton Backup Drive in my image.
