I have a website with an aspx page with c# code behind that I have had running on my own windows server. I have recently transfered the site to a godaddy shared server. I have a page where users can upload photos,  the code I have been using to do so is a follows:

This is in the button click event of the .cs file

// Send Upload
            string strFileName;
                UploadConfirmationTextBox.Text = "";
                strFileName = FileUpload.PostedFile.FileName;
                strFileName = strFileName.Substring(strFileName.LastIndexOf("\\") + 1);
                    FileUpload.PostedFile.SaveAs("D:\\WebsiteFolder\\Upload\\UploadedPics\\Origionals\\" + PictureNumberString);
                    UploadConfirmationTextBox.Text = "Uploaded successfully: " + strFileName;
                catch (Exception)
                    UploadConfirmationTextBox.Text = "Error Uploading " + strFileName;

It worked fine on my own server because the directory was D:.....
How do I change the directory for the shared hosting server?

use the PhysicalApplicationPath
 Response.Write(HttpContext.Current.Request.PhysicalApplicationPath.ToString()); will get you your site PhysicalApplicationPath as in D:\\inetpub\wwwroot\APPLICATION_NAME
your code should look like this

FileUpload.PostedFile.SaveAs(HttpContext.Current.Request.PhysicalApplicationPath.ToString() +"\\Upload\\UploadedPics\\Origionals\\" + PictureNumberString);

Good luck
