    New install - working with directory storage

    I am decently new with Proxmox so forgive a potentially obvious question. I am looking to ensure my VMs are able to take advantage of snapshots.

    Using external drives

    I have two external 4TB usb drives that I wanted to use as a storage pool. I installed PM 6.1 using the standard method with LVM layout.
