To add or remove blocked file types by using Central Administration, log on as a farm admin and go to Central Administration.

-Click Security.
-On the Security page, in the General Security section, click Define blocked file types.
-On the Blocked File Types page, if you want to change the selected web application, on the Web Application menu, click -Change Web Application.
-Use the Select Web Application page to select a web application.

To block an additional file type, scroll to the bottom of the Type each file name extension on a separate line text box, type the file name extension that you want to block, and then click OK.

No. Blocked file types are blocked for everyone including admins.

If Database size if your concern, you could lower the allowed upload file size from the default of 50Mb to something like 10Mb.
