Re: delete files from flash

Supposing you're on the Active the command:

delete /unreserved flash:/a10500-cmw520-r1126p02.bin

unable to permanently delete (without involving the system's recycle-bin) the a10500-cmw520-r1126p02.bin file?

Note (from Documentation):

The delete /unreserved file-url command deletes a file permanently and the action cannot be undone.

The delete file-url command moves a file to the recycle bin and the file still occupies storage space. To
permanently delete the file from the recycle bin execute the reset recycle-bin command in the original
directory of the file.

The HPE FlexNetwork 10500 Switch Series provides very good documentation (e.g. Release Notes) about managing its system's files.
