Hi Aldo,
There are multiple ways to share hard disk between multiple users.
Solution 1: Change in the group settings
1) Navigate to 'Data Center' > 'Storage' > 'Add' > 'LVM Group'
2) Specify the value in the LVM volume group, click 'OK'
3) The disk with large volume will be created

Solution 2: Change the setting of content file
1) Go to 'Data Center' > 'Storage'
2) Select the storage and edit
3) Under 'Content' tab select the image tab
4) Go to .config file of VM and set the value of the users
5) Restart the system

If you want to create an extra partition for that harddrive on Proxmox, this is also possible; such a step would allow you to easily share that partition with other users.

  1. Create a partition and format your drive using whichever file system you prefer, although XFS should be favorite when one takes into account the nature of the files.
  2. Manually mount the file system and create directories using the mkdir /srv/{isos,images,templates,backups,containers}
  3. Now you need to create the Proxmox storage for the directory type.
  4. Place it in the web UI.
