How to locate System Backup file

I have recently upgraded my laptop to Windows 10.

I usually use Macrium Reflect to create a backup image of my drives on a separate hard drive but was having some problems so used the Windows system instead.

I have now resolved the Macrium issue and created an image and would like to remove the Windows image file but I cannot find it although Windows does report a system image having been created on the drive.

Can someone tell me what file name is used and how to search for it ( is it perhaps a hidden file).

Thanks

unless you have other stuff on the drive, just reformat it.
