You might try running the 'fsck' command to check for and fix any file system errors on the flash.

If that doesn't fix it, you can also try the 'format' command to completely re-format the flash. Before trying this, make sure you have backup copies of your config (maybe not an issue in a HA setup) and your software (ASA and ASDM).

If you are still having issues, I would suggest opening a TAC case.

Here are the command references for the commands mentioned above:





Hope that helps.
