use a hidden field, i've done this plenty for the exact same reason. I hate losing the selected file when my validation catches somthing on postback.

So basically, when a fileupload field is entered, or just before the postback event.
copy the file location into the hidden field. then read and populate the fileupload on IsPostback.

Here's some code:


     
HTML:
 
<div>
             <asp:FileUpload ID="uploadHTMLHiddenField" runat="server"></asp:Label>
 .            <input id="HTMLHiddenField" type="hidden" name="HTMLHiddenField"/>
         </div>
 
 
   protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
 
             // Insert message to the label of the html control hidden
             // field if there is a value in the html hidden field
 
             string message = Request.Form["HTMLHiddenField"];
  
             if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(message))
            {
                lblHTMLHiddenField.Text = message;
            }
         }
  
         protected void command_that_postsback(object sender, EventArgs e)
         {
  
            HTMLHiddenField.Text = uploadHTMLHiddenField.Text;
  
   
         }
