Letís say I want a folder to have just JPG in them. I want to restrict people from putting anything inside this folder other then jpg in there. Does anyone know if a registry entry or program that will allow you to restrict a folder to only allow or exclude one type of file extension?

Hello Tendoncs, :thumbsup:

I don't think that's possible in Windows XP, but I'm not 100% sure either. I will look more on this.

You may use the parental control feature to give other users less access, but editing the registry for your cause is beyond me.

I have not used this method, but you may want to have a look here:

The DOS method should work (be very careful here), but it would still rely on user access.

There are some programs that will claim to do what you have asked, but I do not recommend them.

Either way, I don't think this will answer your question, but I hope this helps!

It might help to know I could use group policies. There has to be a way to do this. Or a script that can be written. I could write a script that would delete any of one file ext in the folder. I wanted to get it set up so the user is denied access to write based on the file ext.

Thank you for your response.
