How can I rename an upload file? I wan to change the name to a GUID. Im using asp.net 4 and c#.

  string filepath = "C:\\Uploads";
        HttpFileCollection uploadedFiles = Request.Files;
        int i = 0;
        while (!(i == uploadedFiles.Count))
        {
            HttpPostedFile userPostedFile = uploadedFiles[i];
            try
            {
                if ((userPostedFile.ContentLength > 0))
                {
                    Label1.Text += "<u>File #" + (i + 1) + "</u><br>";
                    Label1.Text += "File Content Type: " + userPostedFile.ContentType + "<br>";
                    Label1.Text += "File Size: " + userPostedFile.ContentLength + "kb<br>";
                    Label1.Text += "File Name: " + userPostedFile.FileName + "<br>";
                    userPostedFile.SaveAs(filepath + "\\" + System.IO.Path.GetFileName(userPostedFile.FileName));
                    Label1.Text += "Location where saved: " + filepath + "\\" + System.IO.Path.GetFileName(userPostedFile.FileName) + "<p>";
                }
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Label1.Text += "Error:<br>" + ex.Message;
