The plakar ls command is used to list snapshots or resources within snapshots, without restoring them.

plakar ls <snapshotID>

plakar ls <snapshotID>:/path/to/directory

plakar ls <snapshotID>:/path/to/filename


Listing the content of a repository, then the content of a snapshot’s /privte/etc directory and displaying the last 3 entries:
