Hi, I hope someone can help me. I am using 2.4.5 and need to upload some files that are not images or the usual formats. The formats are for embroidery machines so they include formats such as .SEW .PES .jef and others. How can I upload those to my website?

Thanks for your help.

Thanks so much Martimiz. That worked great. Didn't need to do the second part.
