So i know how to mount an apfs snapshot from the primary disk(one the OS im in is installed on) so I can browse the contents but I really would like to be able to do this for a secondary drive plugged in via USB. Can anyone point me in the direction of the appropriate commands? I've not had much luck with google so far.

I should add that I've looked at it with R-Studio and it sees various snapshots, however the contents of the files I need seem to be junk. Im not sure if this is actually the case or if its R-Studio not handling it properly and looking at the wrong data/locations

Thanks for sharing. DE can do this too (maybe better than RS). https://blog.acelaboratory.com/apfs.html
