    I wrote an ASP page that lists files in a directory. I use VBscript and everything works great. I can delete files and save them to the Servers HDD but I want to be able to save them to a local hard drive. <BR><BR>using TYPE=File allows me to browse a client directory but ultimately the I can only save to the Server.<BR><BR>Can anyone help me on this?<BR><BR>Thanks... Anthony
