Folder Monitoring Display in GB or TB



Is there any way to change folder monitoring to display in GB or even TB? Bytes is impossible to read and I'd rather not do math every time I need to figure out how much space is left.

This would go for pretty much every space type sensor, I see some in MB but that's just too small of an increment.

Hi there,

Please open the channel settings of one of the Folder Sensors, scroll down to "Channel Unit Configuration", untick the box to break the inheritance and select the Channel Unit you want to use - please check if the new unit is displayed after a rescan.

Afterwards navigate to "Sensors > By Type > F.. > Folder", mark all sensors via the checkbox in the upper right corner of the table and click on the "wrench"-symbol to bring up the settings of all sensors. There you basically do the same to the "Channel Unit Configuration". This will change the used unit for all Folder Sensors.

Best regards.
