hello, does anyone know why with a windows guest i don't see the hard disk in the win task manager?
thank you

when the disk is not initialized you do not see it.
Same thing with me, the VMs that run Windows on Proxmox do not display the HDD in the task manager, regardless of the Windows version. And all drivers installed. Not even the C: drive appears in the task manager.

Just open a command prompt with admin permissions and execute diskperf -y.
Restart the Taskmanager and everything is fine.
