When I installed ProxMox I stupidly created a 32GB drive and them I as I started using ProxMox more I realize I wanted to use that storage to store my ISOs so I am now wanting to use the full size of the disk. Is there a way to increase the size of the boot drive in the ProxMox Web UI that I am unaware of? If not can someone point to the safest way to modify the size of my boot drive?

Can you post the output of lsblk so we have a better idea of how things are?

Okay. Did you remove the pve_data_tdata and pve_data_tmeta pools already?

You will need to increase the pve-root LV and then the file system inside.

To extend the pve-rool LV to the max available size:
Code:
lvextend -l 100%FREE /dev/pve/root
Expanding the file system should be
Code:
resize2fs /dev/mapper/pve-root

Is it as simple as finding those files in their respective directories and deleting them?

EDIT: I have not been able to find them. Can you point me in the direction of where to delete these things?
