Can I block specific file types from being transferred?

AccessPatrol gives you the ability to prevent your end-users from copying specific file extensions to their storage devices.


Using Block File Extensions to Restrict File Type Transfers

  • Under the AccessPatrol tab, select Block File Extensions
  • Under Enter File Extension type in the desired file type that you want to block the transferring of. i.e .csv
  • Click Add
  • Then click Apply to Clients and click OK
Block File Extensions

After applying the configurations above, those files will now be blocked from being transferred to storage devices (except for devices in the allowed list).
