Default Block certain file type/extensions from being copied/used to/in a folder.

Hi Guys

After doing some searching on the net I could not find a way to block certain files from being copied to a folder.

I know one can change read and write permissions of a folder and allow only certain users to have access to that folder.

But does any one know off a way to block or only allow some file types to be used in a folder.

For example, in a publishing house where mags' are designed. I want to create a open share folder for every one. But only allow .jpg .tif .pdf to be copied into the folder, and block other file types like .exe .msi and other files to be copied/read/created in that folder.

Only allow the designers to have permissions to that folder but want them to stop using it for other rubbish.

Thanks
