3640 flash problem

Have a 3640 with 32 meg of memory in it running 12.2.46 crypto code . This is the only image I have in flash yet it says I only have like 3 meg of flash left . When I try to do a "squeeze flash:" command it comes back saying no such file or directory . How do I recover this space it it does not take a squeeze command or is this a bug in the IOS ? Below is what I am seeing . I not sure what it means by first create squeeze log by erasing entire device . I certainly don't want to erase the entire device though I can because it is a test enviroment for ssh testing , anyone seen this before and what is the fix?

ibm-3640-test#dir flash:

Directory of flash:/

3 -rw- 12820032 <no date> c3640-ik9s-mz.122-46.bin

33554428 bytes total (3326796 bytes free)

ibm-3640-test#squeeze flash:

Squeeze operation may take a while. Continue? [confirm]

first create squeeze log by erasing the entire device

%Error squeezing flash (No such file or directory)


Re: 3640 flash problem

Apparently this is a bug addressed by CSCdv89973 . The fix is to totally delete everything in flash , hope that the box doesn't hang during the process and reload the image into flash allowing it to delete everything flash first and then the squeeze command appears to work , nice bug !!!!!!!!!!!! This affects even the latest available code for the 3640 in the 12.2 mainline train .
