There are no situations when hard-coding any path names in the application can be useful. In all programming, in general. Now, as to ASP.NET or any other server-side HTTP server technology, this is especially bad thing: the Web applications are executed in such a sandboxed environment where it is impossible to access any files beyond the sub-directory representing the site's root. You simply won't get permissions for doing so. For some very good reasons.

Good points, permissions are certainly required :-D

Which won't be granted anyway, if this is some absolute path outside the site's root directory... :-)
Thank you, Espen.
