This is the expected behavior and it is by design. For the time being we do not plan to change it and I recommend you to use the provided code in order to disable validation for RadToolBar, embedded in RadFileExplorer:
sender, EventArgs e)
RadToolBarButton button = item
I hope this helps.
All the best,
the Telerik team
