2611xm prompting to erase flash

Evertime I try to copy something to flash my 2611xm will prompt me to erase the entire flash??                 

I can ignore that and the file exists in flash, but why does it always prompt?

R3#copy run flash:baseline.cfg
Destination filename [baseline.cfg]?
Erase flash: before copying? [confirm]n
Verifying checksum...  OK (0x7860)
1199 bytes copied in 8.350 secs (144 bytes/sec)
R3#o^Z

R3#
R3#
R3#show flash

System flash directory:
File  Length   Name/status
  1   34584712  c2600-adventerprisek9-mz.124-15.T14.bin 
  2   1199     baseline.cfg

2611xm prompting to erase flash

Hi Steven,

"The IOS defaults to that for all files loaded to the flash.  It's a  pain, but it doesn't matter what type of file you load to the flash it  will always prompt for a flash erase"
