Hello,
Yes because you are using explicit location (i.e. C drive  and a folder inside it etc...)

In reality when you host a solution, you are given say 1-10 gb space, but you cannot assume it is going to be c drive only, it can be D:, E: or F:.

So you must use relative path to store your files or atleast use server.mappath in order to get the actual path of where exactly your folder is and then you can add your filepath in there.

Also, It will always work on your local machine, because ideally you can access any drive, path on it which won't be the same when uploaded to a host.
Hope it helped.
Let me know of any issues.
