Performing Compact Flash Recovery Using a USB Memory Drive

In addition to recovering the switch using the network, there is also support on the BlackDiamond X8 for rescuing from a USB memory drive. The USB memory drive must be file allocation table (FAT) formatted.

Use a computer with appropriate hardware to place the rescue image onto the memory drive. Place the rescue image in the top level directory of the memory drive.
