Our client would like to hide .zip files from search. How do I go about doing this?
The two options I see are to log into central admin and manage the search application, then to go to 'File Types' and delete the zip file type. The other option is to create a new crawl rule and exclude http://somedomain/*.zip
Will either of those work, and if so, what's preferred? Also, if the 'File Types' section isn't what I'm supposed to use, what is the purpose of that section?
