Stupid question re: deleting a file on a switch

Unanswered Question
Apr 16th, 2007

So lets say someone fatfingered the filename of a bin file on a switch. The filename instead of being just filename.bin is instead \

How in the world do you delete that? Is there an escape character you need to use or something?

I have this problem too.

Delete bootflash:

If you have CatOS you will need to issue the squeeze command also.

You can either delete the flash file or rename it

delete flash: or delete bootflash:

rename flash:

HTH, rate if it does
