Downloading mounted volume (or downloading files from the volume)

Hi, I have an app and mounted a volume to my docker container. My app receives emails and save email attachments, if any, to the mounted volume.

Is there a way I can download the whole mounted volume as a snapshot, or download the content inside to my local machine?

You could try setting up a Wireguard tunnel, then using scp to fetch files from the instance using the IP address listed in fly ips private. People have had mixed success with this, but worth a try!

A simpler solution would be to expose these files in a web service behind authentication. So your web app could create a zip file, for example, and allow you to download from the web.
