files extensions

Dec 11, 2015 at 2:24 AM
Hello! Thanks for this amazing solutions, Im new in SharePoint and this will help me a lot. Im wondering if there is a way to set files extentions, for example to deny a .php, .exe, etc file. And also I would like to know if is a way to limit the files to upload, I mean for example I just want that users could upload 20 files, if they select 21 there will appear a error/warning message or something like that.
Thanks in advance!

Hi Marioruizm,

SharePoint has a list of blocked file types which can be managed in Central Administration. In this list you should see, for example, exe. This will block any exe file from being uploaded to the web application. Unfortunately, it looks like though that SPFileZilla will display a "URI too long" error message instead of something along the lines of "File type blocked".

As for the number of files to upload limit, I have no idea.

Hope this helps.
