Cisco Switch "error writing new config file"

I was attempting to write my changes to a 3750 switch. I receive the error:
Error writing new config file "flash:/config.text.new"
Error writing new config file "flash:/private-config.text.new"[OK]

I performed a dir flash1: with these results:

FSwitch1#dir flash1:
Directory of flash:/

15998976 bytes total (512 bytes free)

I'm not all that familiar with the file system, and I'm not sure what I can delete, or how to do so. I need to be able to write my changes out to the switch.

Okay, you can delete the "sw" file.  It's probably an old image.  You can TFTP it off the switch first if you want to back it up.

To delete it:

del flash:sw

Post a "show boot" from the switch to determine if you are booting the c3750-ipservices-mz.122-25.SEB4 image or the "sw" image.
