Hi Bui duc Anh, 
Good day to you, 
We have checked your reported query on “sort the files based on dateModified by default”. Currently, we have not provided support for this. But we can achieve your requirement in sample level with a workaround solution. In File manager component, success () event is triggered when ajax request is complete. By using this event you can change the sort of file manager after the data is loaded in the file manager. Refer the below code snippet. 

 success: function(args) { 
          var root = this.element; 
            // You can get the datemodified header and perform the click operation. 
          }, 1000); 
For your reference, we have prepared a sample. 

Please let us know, if you have any concerns.

I read the NEW FEATURES release on version 18.2.44
#275878 - Provided an option to prevent default sorting of the files and folders in the File Manager component.

Could you please tell me is this the option to set default sort (by name, modified date..) asc/desc? and how to do that?

Hi Bui duc Anh, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
In the latest EJ2 version (v18.2.44), we have introduced option to prevent default sorting (Ascending) in File Manager. 
By setting the sortOrder as None (Indicates that the folders and files are not sorted), we can prevent the default sorting in FileManager. 
Please, check the following sample for sortOrder as none 
This feature not provides option to set sortOrder by date modified, name and such fields. We suggest you use our previously shared solution to meet your expected requirement. 
Please, let us know if you need any further assistance. 
Shameer Ali Baig S.
