You can't save files to any folder outside the web site's virtual folder on the server. It's a security thing. However, you can save it to your web site's folder, and have windows service running on that server that looks for new files and then copies those files to a folder external to your web site.

Or OP can simply adjust the rights if the IIS user for the application pool to allow access to a particular folder ...

Which would be a *bad* thing to do. Your web site should not be allowed unfettered access to the rest of the server.

Create user with limited quota, allow access to subdirectory, can hardly be called unfettered access ...

I basically agree, despite the ways to do otherwise, my 5.

Did u set the permission of Folder : right click on folder set the set the permission "Everyone" i think this might solve the problem
