Renaming files Issue 2690

I have a switch that no one could remember the password to
Ok no worries ill use the password recovery option and that is when the pain began

I can not seem to rename or even delete the files without "No such file or directory" wrecking my day.

Any guidance would be great :)

 

switch: dir flash:
Directory of flash:/

Out of all the people who have looked at the issue and have tried no one picked that up.
That is simply hilarious.
