Summary
As the disk space on the Intrusion Protection System (IPS) internal Flash begins to fill up, the IPS may begin to have issues uploading Digital Vaccines (DV) and Profile updates as well as generating Tech Support Reports and System Snapshots. To alleviate this issue, you may need to perform cleanup on the IPS via the LSM (web interface) to remove old data/files that are no longer needed. You can export these files to a local system in case they are needed later.

Use the following steps to remove files and reclaim the required disk space.
