  • File Type Restriction on folder

    Hi,

    I am trying to create a folder on my server which people can access and store ONLY .jpg images into. I want it locked so it doesnt allow people to save things like .doc and .xls files into. Is there a way of doing this? It sounds simple but I can't think of a way to do it.
    Server is 2008r2

    I believe you can do this with File Screening (which is a component of File Server Resource Manager) but I have no first hand experience doing it.

      Yes - FSRM will do it for you. Open FSRM, expand File screening Management and right-click File Screens > Create File Screen. Define the path to the folder you wish to control then click the Custom button. Select everything apart from Image Files. Done!

          Hi

          ok let me explain you, this could be easily and efficiently done by microsoft file server resource manager (windows server 2008 features)
          once you installed this feature you could easily identify a option called file screening by using this option you could filter or disallow to save various types of extension.

          Good luck!
