I noticed when I install proxmox on a disk, it erases the latter (with no warning). I have tried only one disk for the moment.

If i add other disk and I do a new installation, will it erase all my disks or only the one on which it is installed?

It will give you choice to install on which drive, and of course the installation drive will be formatted.

There is of course a warning that the selected disk is formated and all partitions and data is lost on this disk. Please check again.

Only the disk which you select on the installer dialogs.
