The server cant know the file structure of the client therefore, its highly unlikely you can get this to work (to my knowledge) unless of course there is some javascript that can get the file structure for you.  Anybody else got an idea of how to make this work?

hi binaryevo,

Is it possible to filter the types of file that we are uploading?
For ex., i want to ulpoad only .txt file or a .zip file nothing else.
Is it possible through upload control?
I do not see a filter property for this control.

Yes that is much easier... I would personally do it the way this article is describing it:
