<add key="FileExplorerPath" value="~/FileExplorer"/>

Liubaobao File Manager uses a xml for configuration, it is located in "FileExplorer/Config/config.xml"
The following properties can be configured:

  • Root Directory

  • Protected Paths (paths that certain role of user can access)
  • Editable Paths (paths that needed to made editable in order for the program to work)
  • Available languages, default languages, programe version, etc.

3. Languages
