Rate this:

I got a path from the jquery code URL.createObjectURL(event.target.files[0]);


It returns something like this : blob:http%3A/localhost%3A59105/f7dae0f7-088f-48cf-b446-eeda0bf23705


I tried to save this file like


byte[] data;

    using (WebClient client = new WebClient())


        data = client.DownloadData("blob:http%3A/localhost%3A59105/f7dae0f7-088f-48cf-b446-eeda0bf23705");


    File.WriteAllBytes(@"~/a.jpg", data);

But it gives an error about the code above:


  The URI prefix is not recognized.

How exactly I can copy this file?


Thanks for your suggestions.

1.Create simple GET method



public ActionResult GetFile(){

  return View();


2. Create View with @Html.BeginForm helper


@using (Html.BeginForm("GetFile","YourController", FormMethod.Post, { enctype = "multipart/form-data" }))


<input type="file" id="fileup" name="file"/>

<input type="submit" value="Send">


Rembember to use name attribute and overloaded version of Html.BeginForm()


3.Get data in Backend



public ActionResult GetFile(HttpPostedFileBase file)


  if (file != null && file.ContentLength > 0)


     var fileName = Path.GetFileName(file.FileName);

     var filePath = Path.Combine(Server.MapPath("~/Temp/"), fileName);




  return RedirectToAction("Success");


Name in html attribute must have same name as HttpPostedFileBase.
