    In some instances, I want to rename my root folder (top node ni TreeView). This is done via an ajax call that triggers the rename in the backend. After that ajax call is done, I call explorer.refresh() (client side). However, the name of the top node in the TreeView doesn't update.

    When calling explorer.refresh() I've verified that PageLoad is executed in the code behind. I update the "root folder" paths during page load:
    fileExplorer.Configuration.ViewPaths = new[] { newRootFolderName };
    fileExplorer.Configuration.UploadPaths = new[] { newRootFolderName };
    fileExplorer.Configuration.DeletePaths = new[] { newRootFolderName }; 

    Still, the root folder name doesn't update in the TreeView on the page.

    Is there a way to update the root folder (except doing a hard refresh)?

    Hi Andreas,

    If I understand your scenario correctly you want to change the root folder of the RadFileExplore with an AJAX call. To ensure that the new folder will be populated in the in the TreeView you need to clear collection previous loaded folder before setting the new ViewPaths, e.g.:
    RadFileExplorer1.Configuration.ViewPaths = new String[] { "~/ROOT/NewFolder12" };

    If this is not the case could you please describe in more details what exactly you are trying to achieve? A sample page demonstrating the specific scenario will be of great help.

    Best wishes,
