request system software delete-backup



(Junos OS only) Use this command to delete the backup image previously created. Junos OS keeps a backup image of the software that was previously installed so that you can downgrade to that version of the software if necessary. If you delete this image, you cannot downgrade to the particular version of the software. Note that this command does not perform any function on SRX Series devices with the dual-root partitioning scheme (units that are shipped with Junos OS 10.0 version or later).
