Disk usage free vs used space

Hi, Thanks for your PRTG solution with great feature for daily supervision. However, I am surprised about your idea to plot free usage disk instead of used disk space. I have always to figure out that charts are representing free space instead used (and with plain color plot, this is worse : used = blank area, free = plain color area !). This is a strange way of representation. No technician can see for the first time this graph without making a wrong interpretation. Would you represent CPU usage the same, with maximum usage at bottom of graph saying there is no more resource ? No of course ! Is there any chance that Paessler add a feature (check box) in global settings to have 'normal' representation (plotting used disk space with 100% at top and 0% at bottom) ?

Regards Antoine Davous

Hi Antoine,
Thank you for your suggestion. I'm afraid currently no changes are planned to the display of the sensors.
However, I will forward your request to our development team but cannot guarantee if or when something will be implemented.
Best regards
