    If you want to make the FileExplorer access files and/or folders outside your application's root, you will need to implement a custom FileBrowserContentProvider.

    The FileBrowserContentProvider abstract class allows for different file sources to be used in the RadFileExplorer control, such as file system, database system, CMS-specific resource system or even online storage systems such as Amazon S3. You can find various custom content providers in the KnowledgeBase and CodeLibrary sections of our site.

    I believe the content provider from the following KB article will be suitable for this specific scenario:
    Use RadFileExplorer with physical and shared folder's paths

    In addition, you can find more detailed information on how the content provider works in the following help article:
