How to copy files from inside an Amiga hardfile to real filesystem

Hi all, first time post ...
(Cutting a long story short) ...
I have | had an A1200 with a Mbx 1230XA accel ( 50Hz ) , several years made a full dd image backup of the 1Gb HDD ...
Only recently have the time to dedicate back to the Amiga again but my hdd died ...
I do have several files that I need to recover from that HDD hardfile ...

I am able to boot and work with the HDD hardfile but I how can I "map" to the real system?

I am using WinUae with Wine ...
Thanks in advance

As you are on Linux anyway, just mount it... What you can do is:

losetup -f -P your_image.img

after that you should have blockdevices /dev/loop0p0,1,2,3

These you can then mount as if they were normal disks (so mount -t affs /dev/loop0p1 /mnt)

the Linux "mount" command does not work as the HDDFile is in PFS.

WinUAE works properly so my question is more like how can I "map" within the running emulated Amiga the outside ( real external directory or similar ??

Inside the Amiga how can I "scan" or access the outside medium ?
( I do not remember very well... how to force an hardware scan in Workbench ...)

Ah PFS, i kind of assumed FFS, sorry!

In that case why dont you just add a directory filesystem to your WinUAE ?

Then you can just do a simple `copy clone all pfs_disk: directory_fs:` and be done.
