Physical File System Provider

ASPxFileManager uses the physical file system provider when the ASPxFileManager.ProviderType property is set to Physical.

The physical file system provider is represented by the FileSystemProviderBase class that gives you a definition of methods for getting a file and folder hierarchy, and the methods for editing file manager items.

Expanded Provider Settings

Use the FileManagerSettings.RootFolder property to specify the file manager root folder. You can use the PhysicalFileSystemProvider.RootFolderDisplayName property to specify the root folder name, which is displayed within a file manager.
