How to access local files in the BlackBerry 10 Simulator ?


Ok, so I have my VMWare Simulator with the Dev Alpha image and I'm looking for a way to extract my app's local files. Is there any way to do that ? I know I can open it in memory and debug it but I could really use the entire file for back-up saves, screenshot saving and various other reasons.
