Upload a file via a web browser to the root directory

If I want to upload a file to a spefic directory (lets say uploads) the following code works perfectly

' Grab the file name
FileName = Upload.Fields("File1").FileName

' Get path to save file to
Folder = Server.MapPath("Uploads") & "\"

' Save the binary data to the file system
Upload("File1").SaveAs Folder & FileName

' Release upload object from memory
Set Upload = Nothing


How do you do it if you want the file in the root directory?

Hi Jody,

change
Folder = Server.MapPath("Uploads") & "\"

to
Folder = Server.MapPath("/")
or
Folder = Server.MapPath("\") & "\"

for more info about Server.MapPath() refer

I utry..
Dim fs, folder
     
   Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
     Set folder = fs.GetFolder("/")

or is it

Set folder = fs.GetFolder(".")


and the code has to reside in the root directory

sorry - what I mean is I would try the following code:
....................
Dim fs, folder
  Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set folder = fs.GetFolder("/")
....................
and the code has to reside in the root directory

Sorry for not understanding, but where would it go within this code?

 Grab the file name
FileName = Upload.Fields("File1").FileName

' Get path to save file to
Folder = Server.MapPath("Uploads") & "\"

' Save the binary data to the file system
Upload("File1").SaveAs Folder & FileName

' Release upload object from memory
Set Upload = Nothing

The code above works perfectly in a sub folder. I just need to know how to make it go into the root directory. Can you help me with this or point me to someone who can?

use this:

' Grab the file name
FileName = Upload.Fields("File1").FileName

' Get path to save file to
Folder = Server.MapPath("\")

' Save the binary data to the file system
Upload("File1").SaveAs Folder & FileName

' Release upload object from memory
Set Upload = Nothing

-----------the code has to be in the root folder.--------------
