Cisco Secure Desktop Space Requirements

Does anyone know what the space requirements are for the Cisco Secure Desktop configuration.  Each time I try to configure CSD it tells me "the disk is (or was) full during extraction."  Looking at my space in flash there is more than enough space unless Im missing something.

Hello Garland,

The only way you can make this work would be by deleting some configuration files or an image that is not in use.

Setting an image into the flash is a pretty straight-forward process as you know so if you are unable to do it then it's because there is no space there, I have been on that spot and after I delete one or 2 files everything works

Hi Bro

When a Secure Desktop environment is created, an encrypted file space is generated in the Cisco ASA. The file space starts small and grows to a maximum of 2GB, depending on the applications loaded from their default locations whilst operating within Secure Desktop.

For further details on this, please kindly refer to
