Hello.
You can use the File Sensor to monitor the size of any file as long as it is on a SMB share acessible by PRTG or on a Probe device.

If the file is on a host running Windows and not acessible by SMB you can use the WMI File Sensor to shows you exactly the same metrics as the regular File Sensor.

In both cases, these sensors have high impact on the system performance, we recommend long scanning intervals and low sensor count(per probe) for this sensor types (<200 Sensors).

Once the sensor was set-up you can configure the "File size" limit to be 19000000000 (bytes). That's 19GB.
