Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'D:\INETPUB\VHOSTS\\httpdocs\uploads\101 (2).jpg' is denied.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6 and IIS 7, and the configured application pool identity on IIS 7.5) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

To grant ASP.NET access to a file, right-click the file in File Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the boxes for the desired access.

So? It's an authorization issue, you can not solve it from code...
However you may choose an other - authorized - destination for your files...

Add sufficient permission to the 'uploads' folder
right click -> Properties -> Security..

In the error message that is popup you can see the error details (Unauthorized Access) and also the solution (to give access rights).

PS: So did you tried like is suggested and is not working?
