How to powerwash

You can powerwash if you do Ctrl + Alt + Shift + R on the sign-in page. The Chromebook will ask you to reboot, and then once it reboots the dialog for powerwashing will come up.

It is not recommended to powerwash a device that is running a test image, as this will remove rsync and other tools needed for deploying.

Note: Powerwashing is not available on managed devices.
