Hello,

 

Is it possible to block file types for certain users? We are migrating our tenancy to use OneDrive KFM and would like to block files like exe's for students however not for IT Technicians, is this possible?

Hi @Rhys Williams

AFAIK, it's currently only tenant wide

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/block-file-types

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/sharepoint-online/set-spotenantsyncclientrestrict...

However, could possibly be a workaround if you were willing to set up Azure Files alongside for the specific IT Technicians who need to access anything like exe's, bat's etc.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/files/storage-files-introduction

Hope that helps to answer your question

Best, Chris
