  • When the Barracuda logo appears quickly tap the up and down arrows on the keyboard
  • Select Recovery
  • Select the second option to Perform Full System Re-image
  • Confirm that you want to restore the Barracuda to it's factory default settings
  • The re-image process takes about 10 minutes to complete
