Is there a way to prevent domain users from saving video or certain file types in a share folder?

Greetings,

I am trying to prevent domain users or a group of users in my domain to not let them save certain types of files, for an example here "Video files", in "one" share folder that they have access to as a mapped drive.

Knowing that there are more than just one shared folder mapped to them as drives.

Is there an automatic way through GP or using a script to do it?

I would appreciate it if theres a guide to help me accomplish this.

Thanks

The only built in option is the file screening function, see here for further details: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732074.aspx

Take a look at Microsoft's File Server Resource Manager  which will allow you to do what you want.

You can download File Server Resource Manager Step-by-Step Guide for Windows Server 2008 R2 here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=ce60112b-5467-4b87-89de-c6b8d89ee3d9

Good luck & best regards,

The same is true, this feature has been available since Windows 2003 R2 if I recal correctly.
