    What are blocked extensions

    Sometimes, especially for educational organizations, administrators need to block certain file types by its' extensions, like media content. For example, your students may exchange multimedia files and in such cases they can copy content with prohibited copyrights.

    Of course, this solution is not 100% proof: user can hide files into encrypted archives, simply change extensions, etc. But we do not need to stop any exchange of illegal content (it is not possible). Instead, we can make process much harder - just imagine student needs to rename every file while he want share music from his' iPod, before copying it to server.

    Blocking by extension works independently to other components, so you are able to specify start folder and specific account(s) that acts with blocked extensions even without any quota limit defined. As other parts of WinQuota, all checks are done in kernel mode, so simple tricks like killing application will not help.

    You can specify either masks like

    • *.mp3

    In this case all MP3 files will be denied completely at all drives. Or you can specify starting point:

    • c:\home\john\*.mp3

    In this case MP3 files will be denied for all sub-folders beginning from c:\home\john.

    Additionally, you can limit extensions blocking to specific user or group, to make life harder only for specific person(s). Both local and domain groups and users are acceptable.
