Enterasys C1H124-48 switch configuration download

I need to send a config file to my enterasys so I can apply it. I have no problem with first creating one using:
show config outfile slot1/startup.cfg
copy file://x.x.x.x/slot1/startup.cfg tftp://x.x.x.x/startup.cfg

When I try to copy from tftp to local slot1 I get an error saying invalid image file!
I just want to copy back the backup settings startup.cfg file:
copy tftp://x.x.x.x/startup.cfg file://x.x.x.x/slot1/startup.cfg
 so I can run:
configure slot1/startup.cfg.

I've tried this over with many switches I have of the same model, and I don't think it's file corruption. The file looks fine when you open it. What am I doing wrong?

I looked at the manual. It looks like you have the IP address in there twice and the file://.

Here is the correct syntax:
copy tftp:// slot1/myconfig.cfg
I don't have that model Enterasys so I don't know the commands off the top of my head but a couple of things come to mind.

That invalid image error is what I see on other Enterasys switches when trying to copy a config file to the root and not the configs directory.

Another thing is maybe it won't let you overwrite the startup.cfg. Can you try to tftp copy it as a new name coming back?

Is there enough space on the file system to copy to it?
