2.  Go to Clients > Manage Policies.

3. Select the “Policy” to which you want to add custom file extensions/file types.

4.  Go to General settings in the selected Policy.

5. To add custom file type /file extension, enter the file extension name and set its maximum file size.

For E.g.
If wish to back up AutoCAD data which has file type .dwg. Add file type in the EPS console 7.6 from the policy.

6. Click Add. AutoCAD data will be backed up on the endpoints once the settings are saved in the policy.

7. To save your settings, click Save Policy.

  2. The default file types has maximum file size limit of 25 MB.
