I assume you mean `C-x C-f'.

I am in
one directory with long hierarchy. I want to go down the hierarchy to
some other path. Keep pressing the backspace button is cumbursome. How
do I set the key so that c-backspace or Alt-backspace deletes the word
in the minibuffer??? I am sure I was it's possible because i had this
setting in my last company. But I can't remember exactly what this
setup was!!!

`M-<delete>' and `M-<backspace>' work for me without any customization.  (On

my keyboard, the Alt key is the meta modifier.)
