Where is the local-zfs directory with all my VM`s?

i can't find the Folder where my vm storages are installed. I could find all my Containers in the /rpool/data folder but no vm is there. I want to import a .raw image into one vm that i've already created.

I hope somebody can help me. :)
ZFS on Proxmox make use of ZVOLs instead of file-based images. So, each time a new guest is created on a ZFS volume, a new ZVOL is created for each disk.

You can always use the qm tool to import a qemu compatible vdisk and qm will take care of creating a new ZVOL and you can then attach the ZVOL to your guest.
