Hi Vasilisc,

It's not clear what you're asking here. Files in $SNAP_USER_DATA are
versioned, which means an updated snap will get a copy of the previous
version's files. If you want to keep using the same files, instead of a
copy of them, then you can use $SNAP_USER_COMMON instead.

You can learn more about these environment variables here:
