I am unsure how to clear files out of my flash. After I delete a file it has the [deleted] tag next to it when a show flash: is performed. I thought all I had to do was squeeze the flash to get rid of it but it keeps giving me the following:
Squeeze operation may take a while. Continue? [confirm]
first create squeeze log by erasing the entire device
%Error squeezing flash (Unknown error 0)
On Cisco 2600 or Cisco 3600 series routers, the entire file system has to be erased once before the squeeze command can be used. After being erased once, the squeeze command should operate properly on the flash file system for the rest of the flash file system's history.
Please follow the instructions on this page on how to erase the flash:
