Catalyst 3750 Switch in Switch Stack in version mismatch

I had a Catalyst 3750 in version mismatch after I replaced a failed switch member.  I ran the "archive copy-sw /overwrite /destination-system" command and I got an error saying "there was not enough memory to execute this command".  I was wondering why I got that when I used the overwrite option.  Shouldn't that have resolved the problem with lack of flash memory by overwriting the old image file?  I ended up upgrading that switch manually but I would have preferred to do it while it was connected in the stack.  Should I have manually deleted the old image file on the switch in version mismatch to free up the memory?  The switch has 32MB of flash.

This happens if you don't have enough space available. Overwrite doesn't overwrite the previous flash until a certain point during the archive. Up until that point it needs space to extract the files from the .tar. If you don't have enough space then you will get the error you describe. In this case you had to delete the old ios to free up space.
