    I have a screen with file explorer on it.  I understand you cannot delete the parent, top level, folder, but I should be able to delete a file in the parent folder.  When I right click and brink up the content menu I can delete but the delete button in the toll bar is disabled.  If I move the file from the parent directory to a child folder the delete button on the tool bar will enable.  It is only the toolbar delete for file in the top level folder that does not work.

    Hello Frank,

    The desired functionality should be available in RadFileExplorer if the delete permissions to the Root directory are configured properly. You can test this on our online demos, where the root Images directory has set full permissions - video. Can you, please provide the exact markup where the issue so we could examine it further?

    Note, that the Delete button of the FileExplorer's toolbar will not be enabled unless a file in the Grid is selected, because otherwise the control will try to delete the currently selected in the tree folder (the root directory in this case). If this is the behavior you would like to avoid - I am afraid that this is a part of the design of FileExplorer and cannot be manipulated.
