write erase accidentally

If you did a write erase, but didn't reload the switch, you should be able to do a write command and save it back. If the switch reloads now, there will be no config on it.

As long as you haven't reloaded the switch you will be fine. The write erase deletes the startup configuration not the running configuration.

You need to do a "wr mem" or a "copy run start" to save the current running config to the startup configuration.

Then do a "sh startup-config" to make sure it has been saved properly.
