I am learning how to upload a file to a server in C# ASP.NET.

What is the difference between these 2 functions:

element.PostedFile.SaveAs();

WebClient's wc.UploadFile();

    Hi Manoj, 


    They are extremely different.

    HttpPostedFile represents a file that has been sent to your server from a client.

    WebClient.UploadFile() allows you to send a file to an arbitrary server from your client.
