Cisco Router: Permanently delete files from filesystem

Temporarily delete files

If you wish to delete file/s from Cisco router flash, you use for example:

delete flash:default.cfg

However the deleted file actually still resides in flash.

Files which I deleted from flash actually still reside in the flash but marked as deleted

Permanently delete the files from flash.

To permanently clean up the [deleted] files:

squeeze flash:

The trash is emptied 😀
