Dear Team, I have Factory sensor which calculates sum of inbound speed for several servers. I have to calculate estimated time for ordering new storages. Is there any way how to get this value from the prtg sensor using powesrshell script or wright this value to some file?

You can use the API to pull out historical data from your sensors and then manipulate the data that comes out of PRTG. You can see the API documentation under Setup->PRTG API. With that, you should be able to write the values to a file if needed.
