Ok so I cannot download any files to fix my /var section.  I have a 2 TB seagate that has a USB 3 cord to it.  I do not have an open USB port so I plugged it in to my USB hub thingy and it got shut down.

So, the USB HDD does not have a power adapter; it is powered by USB (?). It is powered by USB as it only has one cord with it.

It is no longer usable.

The USB HDD or the USB hub?   The USB hub no longer works and it does not have a power supply.

Have you tried turning everything off, re-patching the USB as it was before the failure, and then powering up everyting?   Yes the hub is shot.

So the question is I have a HDMI spot open on the computer and if I find a USB adapter to HDMI and plug it in will that work.

I looked and there are many different kinds and most are about monitors.  I don't want to blow up my seagate or my computer but am at a loss as to which way to go.

AIUI HDMI sends audio/ video signals only, and does not include a USB data channel.

I plan on using the sea gate to back up my home partition and then install 11.6 on the computer and use the seagate as a back up.

Any ideas would be of great help.

I would connect the USB HDD directly to the computer.   I would but it does not have any open USB ports avail.
