please explain with an example...not getting the proper problem statement

Try something like:

void Save(string sourceFilePath, string destinationRootDirectory)
    //create the destination directory
    string currentMonth = DateTime.Now.ToString("MMMM");
    string destinationDirectory = destinationRootDirectory + @"\images\" + currentMonth;

    //copy the source file to that directory
    string shortFileName = Path.GetFileName(sourceFilePath);
    string destinationFilePath = destinationDirectory + @"\" + shortFileName;
    File.Copy(sourceFilePath, destinationFilePath);

As OP is using ASP.NET, he probably need to map the resulting path, and adjust the security settings for his web application - you may want to update your answer to reflect this, and I'll vote on it at that time :)

Well, I don't know anything about ASP.NET. I wrote this answer because I supposed it was just a C# problem. So feel free to improve my answer or even add yours.

As my answer obviously builds on yours - my 5

thanks ;)
To implement the methods described by Olivier Levrey, you will probably need to use HttpServerUtility.MapPath[^] to get a physical path for your files. Put a '/' at the beginning of the path to indicate an absolute virtual path to the site.

You will also need to ensure that the IIS user context for your web application has the required access rights to manipulate the filesystem.
