I completely messed up my switch. Can't even get into the switch. Not only that there are bunch of files in flashtaking up space. Is there a way to just wipe out flash manually or with gui software? Thanks
if I understand correctly you may want to get rid of the current switch config and want to set it to factory default. If so, change the procedure as follows: at step 7. DO NOT "Type rename flash:config.text flash:config.old to rename the configuration file." INSTEAD type "delete flash:config.text" to get rid of the current config
proceed with 8. and 9. and be lucky if you can enter config mode as in step 10. you do not need to perform 11. - 14.
To get rid of files, use the delete command in enable mode. For example to get rid of the vlan configuration (to set the switch back to factory default) switch# delete flash:vlan.dat
to remove any other files like xyz.abc in flash: switch# delete flash:xyz.abc
to get a list of all files swich# dir /all DO NOT REMOVE THE SOFTWARE IN flash: it should looks like c2900xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC7.bin
If there is an html directory do not remove it or its content (the files from the switchs' web interface)

The system has been interrupted, or encountered an error during initializion of the flash filesystem. The following commands will initialize the flash filesystem, and finish loading the operating system software:
flash_init load_helper boot
when I do flash_init the switch hangs
I tried to install new IOS, there is not enough space. I just want to wipe it clean. How do I do that?
From the looks of your screenshot, my thoughts are that your flash has been corrupted. On some 2900 flash is upgradeable but most are not! In order to load the full IOS your flash must be fully initialize! Did it?
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
