I am not sure if it is model dependent or IOS version dependent, but I tested using the compact flash card to store the startup config and it worked well. I was testing on an 1841 running 21.4T.

1- service compress-config,

2- copy running-config startup-config command

I have done this but the following message appear:

Uncompressed configuration from 52150 bytes to 201331 bytes
