File Resource Manager: File Screening

Imran Shaikh 21 Reputation points


I have a file server resource manager installed on my win2019 server. I have configured file screening on a particular folder where I am blocking users to copy audio, video, .exe & .msi files.

Files are getting blocked as per the policy but .exe & .msi files, when archived in RAR or zip policy, don't work. If I directly copy .exe it won't allow copying but if .exe is in .rar or .zip format then it allows to copy. Is there any setting where we can block .exe which are in .rar or .zip?

Please let me know.
