In many forums I saw the question like How to get full path from fileupload control from client machine?
For this question answer is we don’t have chance to get full path of uploaded file from fileupload control because of some security reasons browsers will return only file name instead of full file path from client machine.
If you want to get full path of uploaded file from fileupload control from client machine we need to save that file in our application folder from that we can get path of that file like as shown below
string filename = Path.GetFileName(fileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName);
string filepath = "Files/"+filename;
