Yes, but it is pointless, as they were attached for a good reason.

I followed the steps to disable download of certain file types (basically copy and paste the code base and deleted the specified lines) but it didn't work. Am I missing anything? Below is taken from listattachmentsforspace.vm:

 

<html>
<head>
<title>$action.getActionName($action.getClass().getName())</title>

#macro (sortHover $sortByLink)
#if (!($sortBy == $sortByLink))sortHover#end

#decoratorParam("helper" $action.helper)
#decoratorParam("context" "space-operations")
#decoratorParam("mode" "view-space-operations")
