How to use a folder for Uploading files in it in Asp.net

I have a asp.net site, in it user can uploads files of any sizes. It may include image, documents etc.

Now it is hosted in ISS and I need to a folder which is on D drive "D:\Upload" to store all the files which user uploads.

I have used relative path in my code already.

I need to know is there any way by which I can do some mapping to this folder "D:\Upload"
So that my uploaded files go there instead of my site folder which is  different location and mapped in ISS site.

Hi,
you can use physical path, as it is not dependent on your application and application hosting server.

After uploading functionality done, you can raise a request to server to read files from the same location and confirm (alternative solution).

Better way you can keep this path in configuration file and read from there, so that later on you can change it without compiling your application.

Hope this helps you.

The correct way to go about it would be to add a "virtual directory" to your site that maps to the folder on the D: drive.

That way you access it as if it was a relative folder in your site, but it will physically map elsewhere.
