restricting types of files/data that could be uploaded to Windows & UNIX servers

Just like in gmail (& my Outlook) we can't attach an executable file, is there anyway
that we can scan & block if files uploaded (by Rdp copy & paste) is say an executable
& only allow text files?

I suppose in UNIX servers sftp/scp, it's encrypted, we can't check as it's encrypted,
so is there any way to go around this?

This is to prevent certain types of files from being uploaded from PCs to servers

For Windows you got option to use File Screening where you can set your rules which files to allow and which not.

No, not possible using windows' own mechanisms.
Why would you want that? Instead, I recommend to block the execution of unknown code using Applocker.

@reach2sandeep - true. I kind of read the requirement wrong. On servers (and their shares) you can solve it, just not on clients. But will it work with rdp copy and paste to non-shared folders?

Yes it should, as when you paste the data on Server and that server got screening enabled for that path restriction should get applied if I am not wrong...

"if I am not wrong..." - I believe you are because it will only apply to shares.
