  • Blue_whale With recent devices I have noticed that hard drive space seems to be less or the partitions are taking up more space. If you already have 2 partitions I recommend reusing the partition that isn't the active partition to perform your code upgrade or downgrade.

  • We have to install the new Hotfix for which we need both old image which is in HD1.2 and currently installed Active image HD1.1 ...Is there any limitation to create a number of partitions in Physical f5 devices ?

      I'm not aware of a limitation of partitions. You might try deleting the old image partition HD1.2 and then installing the current image and hotfix on a new HD1.2.
