If I am not mistaken, I thought that's what Eric was requesting in his
original message.

I don't because I am new to the Kryoflux but the log looks okay so I was
hoping Eric would know if this was useful.  I do know the disk that the
flux stream was taken from works because it's original and works in my
Victor 9000.

I am referring to what the "fluxtoimd" GitHub page README file states.  It
says " is a Python 3 program to read floppy disk flux
transitions images, demodulate the data, and write the data to an ImageDisk
image file".

I was curious about that but I'm willing to give anything a try if it helps
the preservation process.
