Hi There:

It sounds like you have to do some housekeeping to recover storage space

Couple of items to check:

Check the releases to see what's applied:
<sysname>#show software

Something like this will come up:

================================================== ==================================================
software releases in /intflash/release/

================================================== ==================================================
VOSS7K. (Backup Release)
VOSS7K. (Primary Release)

As a general practice for me, I generally only keep my 7k's current release and one back.

If you have a bundle of old releases you probably want to clear them out. (primary and backup you need, anything else is probably just loafing), then remove the software with:

<sysname># software remove <VOSS#K.#.#.#.#.GA> modify <> string as needed for your platform.

If you've already done then then check to see if your old code is living on your file system:

<sysname># ls *.tgz

You'll get something like this:
<sysname>#ls *.tgz
-rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 62661220 Apr 18 20:41 VOSS7K.
-rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 62810877 May 16 05:35 VOSS7K.
-rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 61568786 Feb 24 23:49 VOSS7K.
-rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 62839489 Oct 12 01:44 VOSS7K.

So I clearly need to clean up some items, so for instance I'm going to delete teh code:

<sysname>#del /intflash/VOSS7K.

Answer the "are you sure" with yes, and verify with the ls *.tgz

Hopefully it's just the need to clear out your old releases - I ran into this in my lab environment a few times and it's been entirely my fault (sometimes I forget to clean up the lab/testing).

Hope this helps. Best of luck.
