Can't you change the read/write permissions?

Query: "i m thinking of shifting my file server on linux....n i m nt able to block mp3 files and .extension files being copied from the file server.

One way:
Put these files into a directory, then set permission of that directory into exclusive: do this--

user@host--$: mkdir mymp3
user@host--$: chmod 700 ./mymp3

that way you alone can open the directory and read its contents. BTW, reload services in order for new permission to take effect.

Another way
Do not share those files, exclude them from the shared folders.


Hope this helps.

good luck.
