Hi guys.
I have a very old proxmox version (4.X).
There I have only one partition where I store both vms and isos images.
Now, I installed pve last version.
After install default process finished I can see two partitions created.
(LVM and  LVM-thin)
After reading in storage documentation , it is not clear for me what the
difference is between them.
Can I use only one partition (like in my old proxmox ver4) ?
Any advice regarding storage layout good practice would be appreciated.
Currently I have a 5TB Raid5 storage available.
