Why? Is it the path on client or server-side file system?

This is what you can get:
string path = FileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName 

AFAIR, recent browsers do not pass on the full filepath any more because of security reasons.

Have a look at the following discussions on similar topic:
FileUpload loses directory path.[^]
FileUpload.PostedFile.FileName not giving full path in chrome[^]
