Remotely access image captured and saved to USB

I’m using a UR3e with a Robotiq wrist camera, and am saving the captured images to a USB attached to the robot. I’d like to use RTDE (or any other remote access protocol) to retrieve the images once they are captured for export and processing in a different tool.

Can a USB-located image be accessed remotely? If so, does anyone know how?

SFTP would be a reasonable approach to extracting files from the robot. But be careful to not make any changes on the robot as you can damage system files.

I also found a comment here: Wrist Camera Live Image — DoF that tells how I can capture the live image with Python (which is better for me than moving the file).
