The file manager displays breadcrumbs when the FileManagerSettingsBreadcrumbs.Visible property is set to true. Use the ShowParentFolderButton property to specify the visibility of the parent folder button, which allows end-users to move to one folder up.

<dx:ASPxFileManager ID="fileManager" runat="server" >
    <SettingsBreadcrumbs Visible="true" ShowParentFolderButton="true" Position="Top" />

Web Forms (in code):

ASPxFileManager fm = new ASPxFileManager();
fm.SettingsBreadcrumbs = FileListView.Details;
fm.SettingsBreadcrumbs.Visible = true;
fm.SettingsBreadcrumbs.ShowParentFolderButton = true;
fm.SettingsBreadcrumbs.Position = BreadcrumbsPosition.Top;


@Html.DevExpress().FileManager( settings => {
    settings.Name = "fileManager";
    settings.SettingsBreadcrumbs = FileListView.Details;
    settings.SettingsBreadcrumbs.Visible = true;
    settings.SettingsBreadcrumbs.ShowParentFolderButton = true;
    settings.SettingsBreadcrumbs.Position = BreadcrumbsPosition.Top;
