    Not sure what you mean by a “special process” — it is the same process you would use with Mojave or earlier. You get your stuff off, reboot into recovery mode, wide the drive and re-install macOS.

    I have a video here:

    Apple has a page on it here:

    Hi Gary
    Thanks for the video. When I was referring to “special process” I was wondering as in Catalina there is 2 volumes produced: “MacBook” and “MacBook – Data”

    After rebooting in Recovery, do I erase both of these volumes?

    Thanks again!

    I just read the Apple page and it gives instructions on how to deal with both volumes.

    Thank you again for your assistance. I very much enjoy your work and I’m glad to support you on Patron

    For others: You erase the “drive” not the volumes. If you only see two volumes in Disk Utility, then switch the View type so you see the entire drive and the volumes under it.
