With the Cisco 2960 switch flash file system, you can copy configuration files, and archive (upload and download) software images.

The command to view the file systems on a Catalyst switch is the same as on a Cisco router: show file systems, as shown in the figure.

Many basic UNIX commands are supported on Cisco switches and routers: cd for changing to a file system or directory, dir to display directories on a file system, and pwd to display the working directory.
