Clone PVE SSD to a bigger one


Feb 12, 2022
Hi, my Proxmox server uses M.2 NVMe drive with 256gb of storage and it contains all the VM's on it. I want to upgrade the SSD to 1TB.
I'm thinking I will just clone the current disk to the 1TB one. However, I will have to expand the proxmox partition size.

How could I expand the partition size so that Proxmox would utilize the 1TB of space?

Or are there any other ways I can move Proxmox to another disk? I don't know what to backup as I also have GPU passthrough, pfSense running and I don't want to mess something up or miss something when backing up.
