i have two files in my router flash .i have deleted one of the file named r1-confg. by checking the show flash status i found the file is present and in bracket it is mentioned as deleted .
my question is what is the meaning of deleted here and how to remove the r1-confg file completely .
System flash directory:
File Length Name/status
1 788 r1-confg [deleted]
2 788 r1-startup.config
[1704 bytes used, 7862612 available, 7864316 total]
8192K bytes of processor board System flash (Read/Write)
have a look at the "Deleting Files" section of this document:
Troubleshooting and Maintenance: Using CompactFlash Memory Cards (Class B File System; squeeze-command)
To claim the space
To reclaim the memory space of deleted files, enter the squeeze flash: command:
Router# squeeze flash:
Squeeze operation may take a while. Continue? [confirm]
