Hi all,

I got multiple Firewall PIX 515E, and I'm trying to clear all data that's in it. But when I do flashfs I see data in there.

pixfirewall#show flashfs

flash file system:  version:3  magic:0x12345679

  file 0: origin:        0 length:2109496

  file 1: origin:  2097152 length:0

  file 2: origin:  2228224 length:1925

  file 3: origin:  2359296 length:3126944

  file 4: origin:        0 length:0

  file 5: origin: 16646144 length:308


Should I be conserned about personal data in here and how can i clear it? Thanks.

So far what I have done is remove the password and Write Erase command.

The imag and asdm files will be there until you issue

format flash:

Once you do that there will not be any os to boot into unless you tftp it back to the flash before reloading.n
