Mod Organizer 2 - How can I browse Windows files / the VFS?

I am very new to Linux, I got tired of d3d11.dll always crashing in Windows 10 every 2 seconds to ~45 minutes and therefore CTDing my game. So, yesterday I made the switch to Ubuntu 20.04 which I absolutely don’t regret but learning linux is harder than I thought hahaha. Anyways, I managed to follow tutorials and get Steam and Fallout 4 installed and running with Proton, and Mod Organizer 2 with Lutris.

[u] My question is the following; [/u] Can I? And if so, how do I access the files/folders of the Mod Organizer 2 VFS(Virtual File System) ?

I can view them from inside MO2 but I can’t open the folder to copy/paste some stuff in. I have saved my MO2 folders(download/mods/overwrite/etc.) on a USB before formatting my drive with Windows 10 so that I don’t have to go through the hassle of re-finding/redownloading them all and that I might be able to play from my last savegames if it were possible and keep things pretty much as they were.

Thank you for any help, it will be much appreciated.

System info if needed.

Its a virtual file system. This means that MO2 reads all installed mods and their order in the list and passes this virtual file system to the game. I’ve seen some post playing with tools like 7zip (under windows) which they added as an application to MO2. As long as MO2 is running the virtual folder will be visible to programs launched via MO2. This was only for reading the contents though as this folder will be gone again when MO2 is closed.
