-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.

Thank so much, is there any way to allow some users upload the blocked files extensions
Jamie McAllister MVPSharePoint ConsultantCommented:
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.
