    [TUTORIAL] Copy files between Host and a VM by using 9p (to/from Linux for now...)

    How can I copy files between the PVE Host and a VM? There are many ways, ssh/sshfs being the recommendation usually. One possible alternative does not need a network: 9p. this is for temporary usage e.g. maintenance or initial setup. 9p is local, so the VM can not migrate anymore for this...

    Hi, I have chosen to use BTRFS since I have been using that since it was included with (Open)SUSE so also chose it for Proxmox. I noticed very low compression on my disk images. Just a few percent. You can easily investigate this by using compsize (package btrfs-compsize). The default mount...
