I want to disable some special user upload file via chatter. But, when i remove following permission from profile, the end user still can upload. i was try clear cache and re-login again. So, is there some other setting for this?

In Profile:

Remove: Create and Own New Chatter Groups

Remove: Invite Customers To Chatter

Remove: Create and Share Links to Chatter Files

Remove: Insert System Field Values for Chatter Feeds

  • There is another approach if its feasible for redesign...Instead of using repository ( via chatter upload ) Library's can be used for repository ( upload ) and for other users "Content" tab can be exposed which doesn't allow upload..This approach can be used if its not mandatory that users should use chatter.

Not sure you can do that. But maybe try to turn off CRUD permission for the "FILES" object on your profile and disable the tab too.

  • There is no files object.

  • Yeah you're right, my bad. Actually I don't think we can restrict user from uploading files in Chatter. Don't hesitate to vote for this idea on IdeaExchange
