On this box I am running a frugal installation of Fatdog64-800 with several savefiles in /mnt/home. They are:

fd64saveJan.ext4
fd64saveKen.ext4
fd64saveKen.bak
fd64saveLiz.ext4
fd64saveOriginal.ext4

When booting I am offered the choice of which of the five files to use. fd64saveKen.bak is a copy of fd64saveKen.ext4 and I see no difference when using it than when using fd64save.ext4. My plan is to move this file to my backup storage device but I thought it might be instructive to see what is inside it.
If I boot up as usual with my fd64saveKen.ext what commands can I use to mount this backup file at /mnt/data?

Code:
mount -o loop  /mnt/home/fd64saveKen.bak /mnt/data

assuming the file is in /mnt/home, or you could rename it fd64saveKen.bak.ext4 or maybe fd64saveKen.bak.4fs. It will then mount automatically if you click it (but not to /mnt/data.) At least Puppy will automount the file if clicked, not sure about fatdog, I'm running a pup at the moment.

In addition, you can mount an unmounted savefile by just navigating with ROX to the savefile location and clicking the savefile icon. It will be mounted on an automatic path, not /mnt/data. If you click the icon again the savefile will be unmounted. "filemnt" is the shell command that performs the mounting/unmounting.

williams2 command did exactly what I was looking for.
I did not experiment further with the other suggestions.
Thanks for the replies.
