    I trying to let users to delete files from subfolders but Only root level files are deletable. This is my code,

    string p1 = "~/Reports";
    string p2 = p1 + "/Images";
    string p3 = p1 + "/Documents";
    var PathsRoot = new[] {p1};
    var PathsAll = new[] { p1,p2,p3 };
    RadFileExplorer1.Configuration.ViewPaths = PathsRoot;
    RadFileExplorer1.Configuration.UploadPaths = PathsAll;
    RadFileExplorer1.Configuration.DeletePaths = PathsAll;

    if i use "PathsAll" for ViewPaths the RadFile Explorer shows 2 Images folder and 2 Documents folder.
    How can i let users to delete files from subfolders ?

    Hi Onur,

    This is the expected behavior, because you set an array of 3 paths to the ViewPaths property. Respectively the FileExplorer control will explore these path in the Tree as different root folders.
    I am not quite sure what is your requirement but bellow I placed an example configuration and explanation of the RadFileExplorer's behavior in this case:
    string p1 = "~/Reports";  
    string p2 = p1 + "/Images";  
    string p3 = p1 + "/Documents";  
    string[] viewPath = new string[] { p1 };  
    string[] deleteAndUploadPath = new[] { p2, p3 };  
    RadFileExplorer1.Configuration.ViewPaths = viewPath;  
    RadFileExplorer1.Configuration.UploadPaths = deleteAndUploadPath;  
    RadFileExplorer1.Configuration.DeletePaths = deleteAndUploadPath; 

    This configuration assigns the following permissions to the folders :

    •  "~/Reports" is explored and it is visible including all of its subfolders
    • "~/Reports/Images" and "~/Reports/Documents" folders are upload destinations. Also the folders/files inside these folders can be deleted.
    • All of the paths that are outside of the above mentioned permissions are invisible or they are visible but the folders/files inside cannot be deleted. Upload is not allowed as well.

    I hope this information helps.

    Ok, Now it's clear,
    File delete problem fixed by putting RadFileExplorer Paths configuration codes on pageLoad.

    Thanks for your answer
    Have a good day
