Re: CSS trouble (disk full without useful file)

I think as you know that, by default, the CSS saves boot and subsystem event log messages to log files on the hard or Flash disk. The content of these files is recorded in ASCII text. You can also configure the CSS to send log messages to an active CSS session, email address, or another host system. The maximum size of a local log file is 50 MB for hard disk-based systems and 10 MB for Flash disk-based systems.


Re: CSS trouble (disk full without useful file)

On some systems, after deleting a file, you have to use a form of "shrink" command to enable device to use available space. I don't know if that's the case with CSS though.
