Instead of a problem, this is a solution. Have you ever wondered if there was a simple way to undelete a file without resorting to Time Machine? I just came across this EclecticLight article that explains how to recover files from APFS snapshots with the help of Mike Bombich's Carbon Copy Cloner I felt was interesting enough to add to my personal Knowledge Base and pass along.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I have no relationship, pecuniary or otherwise, with either EclecticLight or Mike Bombich.
