Missing space on flash

Publication Date:  2017-07-13 Views:  1238 Downloads:  0
Issue Description

 The customer had some CE switches. One switch was  missing 200 Mb of flash memory. Customer compared all directories on all switches and all had same content and size.

 Also, reset recycle-bin was performed, without success.

Handling Process

One important piece of information was that the customer experienced an interruption of a file transfer on this switch long time ago.


Root Cause

During tests , we found out that each directory has his own recycle bin. Executing the "reset recycle-bin” command at the “flash:” directory will  only empty the recycle-bin for “flash:” .

We suggested the customer to check each directory on the flash one by one using the  <CE6850HI>dir /all command. If he would found that one directory has some files in the recycle bin, empty the recycle bin for that particular directory.




The customer found out that one of the directories had a 200 Mb file in the recycle bin.
