Hi Kevin,

I am not quite sure what may cause the problem in your case. Could you please share some additional information about your setup:
  • Do you use a custom provider?
  • Please paste your configuration of the control. How the VewPaths, DeletePaths and UploadPaths are set?

I ask you these questions because this error typically occurs when a custom provider is used and the CheckWritePermissions method does not to return the correct value or DeletePaths is not set correctly.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

All the best,
Fiko

i have managed to get most of this working now by removing the line of code "initial path=" how ever i am unable to now delete from any path i can upload and create and rename folders, here is the config of page.

<Configuration SearchPatterns="*.jpg, *.gif, *.png, *.txt, *.bmp" UploadPaths="/img/photos" DeletePaths="/img/photos" ViewPaths="/img/photos" MaxUploadFileSize="10480000"></Configuration>

thanks

Hi Kevin,

If you use the configuration, that you pasted, with the default content provider of the RadFileExplorer control, you will get these error message: "Failed to map the path '/img/photos'". In order to avoid any unexpected behaviors you need to use root-related paths :
 
<Configuration SearchPatterns="*.jpg, *.gif, *.png, *.txt, *.bmp" UploadPaths="~/img/photos" DeletePaths="~/img/photos" ViewPaths="~/img/photos" MaxUploadFileSize="10480000"></Configuration>

In case, however, that you use a custom provider, please open a new support ticket and send me your project. I will check it and do my best to help.

Best wishes,
