A String value specifying the path to the folder.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Library Object Type Path to TemporaryFolder
ASP.NET MVC Extensions FileManagerSettings
.SettingsEditing .TemporaryFolder
ASP.NET Web Forms Controls ASPxFileManager
.SettingsEditing .TemporaryFolder


When multiple file selection is enabled (the FileManagerSettings.EnableMultiSelect is set to true), ASPxFileManager saves each downloaded file into a temporary file within a specific server folder. Use the TemporaryFolder property to specify the folder containing temporary files.


Ensure that the ASP.NET application has ‘write’ access to the temporary folder on the server.

Note that files are deleted from the temporary folder in the following cases:

  • Once a file is downloaded.
  • If an exception occurs during file upload.
