How to locate the path of an image in a host?

protected System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlInputFile fileAttachment;
protected string strFileName, strFile;

strFileName = this.fileAttachment.PostedFile.FileName;
strFileName = Path.GetFileName(strFileName);
strFile = strBaseDirectory + strFileName;
strFileDisplay = "../backup/upload/" + strFileName;
fileAttachment.PostedFile.SaveAs(strFile);

The correct path is
http://localhost/Gallery/backup/upload/tty.jpg

However, when I see the strFileDisplay, it is
http://localhost/backup/upload/tty.jpg

Gallery is the virtual directory under IIS's default website.

How should I fix it?

Is "Gallery" your application's name? If yes, try this:
strFileDisplay = Request.ApplicationPath + "/backup/upload/" + strFileName;
