How do I erase a specific flash file??

I've somehow managed to get two IOS images onto my 1721 router. I want to remove one of them.

I read on the Cisco website that you use erase flash:# where # is the number/partition you want to erase - which in my case is File 1 however get an invalid input detected message.

Any ideas?

    delete flash:filenameyouwanttodeletehere.extension

    And it usually helps if you just copy and paste the filename from the output of a show flash command

    cheers Mike. this is why having real hardware to practice with is such a good idea. i've learned something else.

    thanks very much!
