Thank you for your message.

I'm afraid that we do not provide sensor for that, however you can still monitor the space used by the virtual machine via its OS. To do so, simply use the native sensors PRTG provides regarding disk space.

Here is the list of sensors available in PRTG: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/available_sensor_types

Kind regards.
