 protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (FileUpload1.HasFile)
                try
                {
                    //FileUpload1.SaveAs("C:\\Temp\\" + FileUpload1.FileName);
                    FileUpload1.SaveAs("http://localhost:61747/Default.aspx" + FileUpload1.FileName);
                         Label1.Text = "File name: " +
                         FileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName + "<br>" +
                         FileUpload1.PostedFile.ContentLength + " kb<br>" +
                         "Content type: " +
                         FileUpload1.PostedFile.ContentType;
                       
                }
                catch (Exception ex)
                {
                    Label1.Text = "ERROR: " + ex.Message.ToString();
                }
            else
            {
                Label1.Text = "You have not specified a file.";
            }
        }

ERROR: The SaveAs method is configured to require a rooted path, and the path 'http://localhost:61700/Default.aspx Accounts.rdl' is not rooted.

I want to save the browsed file in the web application I am creating. Is there any way to do that?In default.aspx page, I want to save the uploaded file.

Thanks

It is not showing any error. But, where I can see the saved file? When I see the default.aspx page it is not there.

It is in your website's root folder (i would guess it is the same folder as Default.aspx resides) and the file name is whatever the file name you uploaded.

Actually u want to store it in server.Its meanigless saying "want to store it in default.aspx" .It is possible that u can save it in root folder or u can store it in particular folder.I will show u an example..
FileUpload1.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("~") + "\\" + "Downloads" + "\\" +FileUpload1.FileName).Here Downloads is the folder where i want to store my uploaded file.Downloads folder is created inside root folder.

Hi KavyaVS,
What are you exactly trying to do.
With fileupload control,you get the file from the browser and save it to the folder on the server.
>>  FileUpload1.SaveAs("http://localhost:61747/Default.aspx" + FileUpload1.FileName); not the proper way,

Have you tried,
FileUpload1.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("~/" + FileUpload1.FileName));
as suggested by the experts.

With this you can see the file, in the root folder of your web application.

Create a folder named"Downloads"(you can set any name),in your application.
Right click the application folder,there you will get 'New Folder' option,set it a name.
Alternatively you can create a directory using code.

Hope this help.
