Could someone please guide me or present documentation related to my need? I would like to know if it is possible to export data from servers that are presented in the dashboard. Especially Volume space used. I need to build a dashboard that shows consumption of data volumes in Power BI or another tool. Thank you

    Hi there,

    This can be done with the help of the Storage Reports Management node of the File Server Resource Manager Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in. You can perform the following tasks:

    -Schedule periodic storage reports that allow you to identify trends in disk usage.
    -Monitor attempts to save unauthorized files for all users or a selected group of users.
    -Generate storage reports instantly.

    If you are comfortable with Powershell you can give this a try.

    You can then use the exported data to use in Power BI to build a dashboard
