Rename or Delete a file in flash which contains a space in filename?

Jump to solution

I uploaded a firmware file via the GUI which couldn't be assigned as a primary or secondary firmware boot.  I attempted to assign it as a boot file in the GUI and the file didn't show up in the drop down menu. I then went to the CLI and executed a show flash.  I saw the file in the list but noticed that it had a space in the filename.  I attempted to delete it and it returned an unrecognized command error.  I attempted to assign it to the primary or secondary boot and it returned and error both times.

I either need to delete the file and upload a copy without a space in the filename or I need to rename it. I need to free up this disk space.  Can this be done?

Thanks,

Dan

Levi supplied the answer to this directly via email...

To erase the file, issue the following command:

erase flash "NV3448A-R10-3-0-E (1).biz"

simply place the filename within quotes.

Solved.

This doesn't work on an Adtran 1234 1st Gen

This is what I found to work

Switch#erase "NV123XA-18-01-08-00 (1).biz"

Deleting NONVOL:/NV123XA-18-01-08-00 (1).biz... done.

Switch#

___

Switch#erase NV123XA-18-01-08-00 (1).biz

% Unrecognized command

Switch#dir

            139 000000000000.cfg

        4665357 NV123XA-18-01-08-00 (1).biz

           5414 startup-config.bak

Switch#erase flash "NV123XA-18-01-08-00 (1).biz"
