Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.
Please find attached a sample project that implements very similar scenario. There are two button below the RadAsyncUpload control. The first one does post-back the page but the uploaded files are persisted as expected. Only the second button is set as RadAsyncUpload PostBackTriggers control so when this button is clicked the page does post-back but the files are cleared.
Hope that this will be helpful.
