Ability to delete a corrupted file

Backup and Recovery
I had a problem sometime during a backup process. I think that someone interrupted the writing of my windows backup file. As a result, I have a corrupt file of 2+ GB. I would like to delete the file and rerun the backup, but the Windows XP OS will not let me delete the file because it is corrupt. How can I delete it?

Have you tried this from the DOS command line? Also check out the windows utilities on CNET.com.
