When you archive, it means you used the image with .tar extension.  It expands this file into directory flash:. What I am saying is maybe it's not lost see below:

Switch#dir flash:

Directory of flash:/


   13  drwx         192  Mar 26 1993 01:20:14 +00:00  c3750-ipservicesk9-mz.122-44.SE


Switch#dir flash:c3750-ipservicesk9-mz.122-44.SE

Directory of flash:/c3750-ipservicesk9-mz.122-44.SE/

   14  -rwx    10519223  Mar 26 1993 01:19:02 +00:00  c3750-ipservicesk9-mz.122-44.SE.bin


If it is indeed lost, do not reboot the switch, archive again or better yet, copy tftp instead of archive and use the .bin image into  the flash:.

Thanks for the response. However, I tried that with no success. I received an error Unable to rename image for box 1. Some systems may have been left in an inconsistent state. And could not  use the copy command successfully. Upon further inspection I found that all three switches had failed to receive the update and their original IOSs where gone.

Any idea as to how this might have occured?
