Got the latest proxmox ve 5.3-9 installed and we have multiple NTFS hard drives installed in the system full of data and we would like to access the data from a windows 10 vm, is there anyway of seeing the data without formatting the hard drives.

Many thanks
Install an LXCcontainer with Samba (Ubuntu) and bind with Domainjoin/Kerberos, or Download the already build Fileserver from the Templates. We have a lot of Containers with this feature. :) You can bind local harddrives to LXC. https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Linux_Container#_bind_mount_points
Or you can install Samba directly on Proxmox, but better is an container, because samba is not really good maintained in Debian. For 2 years we have done it this way, not a good idea. We problems after some sambaupdates with Kerberos.
