    Hi, i'm new with proxmox and i have a problem with LVM volume group
    I want to add sdc disk but is not empty and i have this message :
    "1 existing signature left on the device"

    it's possible to add a no empty device ?

    What do you mean by 'no empty device'?

    If there are data on this device, creating an LVM volume will destroy everything on it so be careful.

    You can try 'Datacenter->Storage->Add' and then choose the right type for your storage.
