    I have a small PVE host which is using its disk like this:

    Code:
    Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/mapper/pve-root   95G  6.8G   83G   8% /
    /dev/sda2             486M  280M  181M  61% /boot
    /dev/mapper/pve-data  317G  178G  139G  57% /var/lib/vz
    
    It would be nice to get some of the unused space on pve-root onto pve-data.

    Assuming I can re-allocate some of that space, is there a reason why I should keep that unused space on the root?

    Try to keep ~ 2GB free, the rest you can use for other purposes.
