When you are working with the FileUpload control , you dont need the full path of the file where the file comes from.

Instead on the click of "Submit" or "Upload" button, you just need to check the FileUpload1.HasFile property and then save the file to the server on any path using


The FullPath is not displayed as a security measure to avoid exposing the client's machine's folder structure or drives to the server.
