restore problem from backup server

I just need to restore one VM backup that happens to be stored in the same VM, so no restore possible while the VM is running.
Yes, pretty smart on my part.

I'm trying to restore to a file but I get this error:

proxmox-backup-client restore vm/800/2023-08-22T00:30:06Z drive.scsi0.img /recovery --repository NAS
Error: manifest does not contain file 'drive.scsi0.img.fidx'

but the files are there and the repository is correct.
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance
I just found out I need to map the snapshot instead

proxmox-backup-client map vm/800/2023-08-22T00:30:06Z drive-scsi0.img --repository root@pam@
Password for "root@pam": **************
Image 'root@pam@' mapped on /dev/loop0

But how do I make a dump of that?
How can I access the disk?
