Deleting TeamCity backup history

Whenever I'm doing an upgrade of TeamCity I will run a backup via the web admin pages (Administration> Backup> Run backup).
Frequently the upgrade install also offers to do a backup as part of the upgrade and I will also do that.

However now I've got several old backups sitting in the backup history for my buildserver and I'd like to clean them up like I can the build history.
I can see no way in the web admin site to delete these backup zip files, and if I manually delete the files from disk they're still listed in the backup history table although they'll no longer have a link to download the zip file.

Am I missing something, or do I need to manually go into the database and delete the records, and remove the files from disk?

At the moment the only available way to delete this files is to remove records from the database. But we do not recommend to change database manually.
I created the issue in our tracker to rework this table: Please vote for it.
