Memory issues

I am trying to upgrade my IOS on a 3550 switch.

The switch has 15MB of space total.

When I delete the current IOS it leaves only 8MB of space.

I need 10MB of space for the new image.

Where is this other space being taken up?

Can I do something to free up the space somewhere?

Re: Memory issues

You have two images in flash already (and one is a directory).  Remove one (or both) of them.

del /force /recursive flash:c3550-i9q3l2-mz.121-22.EA1a

del flash:c3550-ipbasek9-mz.122-25.SEB4.bin

If you're worried that the transfer may fail for other reasons, don't remove your current running image until the new one is copied (provided you have enough space to leave both).

Stanley, can I request if you refrain from making multiple posts of the same issue
