Hi.
I'm already using a container with bindmount on the proxmox backup folder to backup files to wasabi.com

Now I need to backup files within a RAW hd of 5Tb that is assigned to a one virtual machine, in this way I will not need to backup all the 5tb file.

It's possible to mount the 5tb disk assigned to other VM within a container?

Yes, but the VM must not be used in the VM at the same time. You have to mount the virtual disk at the host and then you can access via bindmount.

If the VM must run at the same time define a share inside that VM which can be accessed from the container then.

Oh really thank you.
I can't find any guide to mount raw disk in main proxmox host.
Anyway the only solution is share internally the data with nfs or samba, because virtual machines don't support bindmount ..
