    I am using File Explorer first time.
    Is this possible to have a folder to be listed in this control from 'D' drive of local machine.
    Please give me a solution for this.

    Thanks in advance.

    By design RadFileExplorer can work only with files and folders from virtual folders placed inside the application root directory. In order to configure the control to work with physical paths you need to implement custom content provider. Such provider is available in the following KB article:
    Use RadFileExplorer with physical and shared folder's paths

    More detailed information on how to implement custom content provider is available in the following help article:
    Using custom FileBrowserContentProvider
