ASA CISCO 5510 Firewall copy config error

I am trying copy my Cisco configuration file from the ASDM interface  to my TFTP server and I am getting the following error.

copy /noconfirm running-config tftp://
      copy /noconfirm running-config tftp://
 % Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

How do I resolve this.

The TFTP server is running.
The path exists and is C:\TFTP-Root
I have also tried specifying the name of the file to copy to.

I get the same error when i do that.
run it from cli and don't put /noconfirm in. Also what version of ASA software?

I did it from the command line without noconfirm  and I got the same error. I am not sure how to find out my ASA version
I would try:


... the TFTP server know's what its own root directory is.
You should only need to specify the host and the destination file name.
