How to import and retime a particle cache

I have saved to disc a particle cache, I now want to import that cache and duplicate it around my scene. Could someone please tell me how I can do this.

Also, once I have imported it oils you tell me how I can retime it or offset the cache.

Thank you in advance.

As far as I know, this can’t be done. The particle system is an old part of Blender and it has some limitations.

However, there is a workaround with some limitations. You can export a particle simulation as an alembic file and reimport it. The particles will get converted into a sequence of vertices, which you can turn into objects using geometry nodes.
