SharePoint 2007 and “Blocked file types”

leave a comment »

Yesterday with our quite huge surprise we discovered that when you add new file type to the list of blocked files types, then this will not only block user from uploading files of those extension to SharePoint but also block option to get those files from SharePoint. In our case we block “BMP” files and after a while found that for some reason all pictures uploaded by users are not accessible anymore, that is if picture is placed on some portal, then we get “no image” rectangle… and if someone will go further and try to download this image from the place where it is originally placed then he will get exception message saying that “this file type can not be downloaded as it was blocked by administrator.

So, be careful when you adding some extensions to “Blocked file types” list as you can be surprised with the results 🙂

take care
