I have generated a file offline on Tails that I want to move to another OS without connecting to the Internet. It might have been better to use another Live OS in hindsight.

I guessed that the best way to do this would be to use persistent storage on Tails.

But I have not been able to figure out nor find information on how to access the persistent storage from MacOS, I have only read that it is possible.

Here is a link to how to mount the internal hard disks:
