1. *.pxar vs *.fidx

    There is a large (3tb) file storage of mixed content on a non-virtual host (text files, archives, videos, etc.).

  2. Snapshots, templates, clones, backups: how do they all compare?

    PVE newbie here. 1. How does the following wiki page apply to LXC Containers? 2. There's no mention of "snapshots" in the above wiki page, even though PVE 6.2-11 seems to feature snapshot feature prominently over "template." Is this above...
