Restrict File Uploads By File Type?

Is there a way to prevent users from uploading files of certain types (for example, exe's)? I know you can restrict what gets indexed, but it seems to me like it would also make sense to restrict users from uploading just anything.

    Hi!

    Currently there is no such feature.

    BTW:

    If you restrict the uploads by file type, users will rename the files, upload them, and rename them back to their initial names.

    Kind regards, Dirk

      Dirk -

      Yeah, I kind of figured that users could just change the file extension of a file's name. Someone asked me the question, and I did not know the answer. Now I do. Thanks.
