Can I upload files to a server using ASP.NET programming, if so, is ASP.NET the best way to do this?

I am a contractor who has been assigned the task of uploading files to a server via the web. What is the best way to program this in ASP.NET? I have some experience with ASP.NET, but a lot of ASP classic experience. I was just wondering if it would be easiest to program this in ASP.NET? If so, how would I best do this? I have to be able to associate a logged on user with the newly uploaded files. The uploaded files would be saved in a file management system, each user having a folder for their uploaded files. The database would save information about the uploaded files for a specific person....(the name of the files etc.(not in a blob field))...and then the user would have to be able to view a list of their files that they have uploaded in an asp page, click on them and view them. I also have to be able to do a virus scan on the uploaded files.
Can someone suggest if this is all possible using ASP.NET, and if so, point me to some examples or give me some tips on the best way to get started?
