Balena Etcher Flash Erase

Is it possible to use the Balena Etcher to erase flash on a target device (Balena Fin), and not program anything to it? I have looked at the etcher-cli documentation and other posts on the forum, and this doesn’t seem possible. Am I missing something?

Hi @dstewart
I think the easiest way would be to use Etcher to mount the fin and format the mounted memory with another tool - or you could use the Raspberry Pi Imager which has an “erase” option for compute modules included. I think this should also work with balenaFin :slight_smile:

Thank you - that worked!
