Basically after Slint installation, plug-in the USB drive, wait a few
then use this lsblk command to know how the external drive and its
will be named:
lsblk -lpo name,size,type,fstype,mountpoint
then, mount the partition where the stuff is stored as root, like for
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt
after that copy your files stored in /mnt to another directory in Slint.
the cp command.
