Trying to image a NAS drive (the first of 2 in a JBOD, the second of which died). I know total recovery is out of the question, but I want to image the non-bad drive before I format & redo the whole thing as a RAID 1
Aaaand my "pink KVM" issue has mysteriously fixed itself.
THE MYSTERY DEEPENS
Finally found a good quality kvm, installed it and works great...for ONE of my computers!
The work computer OTOH has some major hot pink color issues, somewhere between the monitor => kvm => usb-c hub => macbook.
