Q. What am I missing that stops this Ajax.BeginForm from uploading a file to the controller action?

1. I always receive a null on the Action 'files'...
2. Unsure if Jquery v. 1.11.1 is an issue

[View] 
  <div id="ProfileFileUpload">
      @{ Html.RenderPartial("_FileUpload"); }
  </div>

[PartialView]
@Scripts.Render("~/bundles/jquery")
@using (Ajax.BeginForm("Upload", "MyAccount", null, new AjaxOptions {  HttpMethod = "POST", UpdateTargetId = "ProfileFileUpload" }, new { enctype = "multipart/form-data"}))
{   
    <input type="file" id="file" name="files" />
    <br>
    <input type="submit" id="submit" value="Upload Image" />                            
}


  [Action]
  [HttpPost]
  public ActionResult Upload(IEnumerable<HttpPostedFileBase> files) 
  {
       foreach (var file in files)
       {
            if (file != null && file.ContentLength > 0)
            {
             }
        }
     return PartialView("_FileUpload"); 
  }

[View Source]
<script src="/Scripts/jquery-1.11.1.js"></script>
<script src="/Scripts/jquery.unobtrusive-ajax.js"></script>
<script src="/Scripts/jquery.validate.unobtrusive.js"></script>

<form action="/MyAccount/Upload" data-ajax="true" data-ajax-method="POST" data-ajax-mode="replace" data-ajax-update="#FileUpload" enctype="multipart/form-data" id="form0" method="post">    

    <input type="file" id="file" name="files" />
    <br>
    <input type="submit" id="submit" value="Upload Image" />                            
</form>

I tried running your code and it works fine i.e. I can see value in the file.
I tested in IE10 and FF.

Not sure what could be causing that...

I tried 1.10.2 and 1.11.1. You can try switching the jquery version on your file and see if that makes any difference for you.
