I accidentally deleted a sensor for which I wanted some historic data. Is there any way to recover it?

thank you very much for your KB-Post. You can try restoring one of the automatic configuration backups of PRTG. This will mean though loosing all changes since then (to the point which backup you use). And it will only work if you deleted only sensors, if you deleted devices this will not work, because then the historic data will be purged already.

best regards.
