How to prevent my client to delete file in our web server

We have offer a web space to hosting our client website. We offer them to
upload asp files to their web space. How can I prevent the client from
uploading asp files that will harm our web server. For example, deleting
files in our server using Scripting.FileS ystemObject to delete our system
files.

Please advise me how to prevent from happening.

Regards
Chris

I would imagine it would just be a matter of setting appropriate filesystem
security, wouldn't it?

Of course, you could install Norton and enable its script-blocking feature

I asked the question yesterday, but know better how to ask it, today: I'm trying to use the File.Copy method to copy a file from a client to server (.Net web app under IIS ). It looks to me that when I give a path like @"C:\holdfiles\myfile.txt" it looks on the server C drive. How do I pull from the client? Do I need a different class and/or method? Filestream? -- Thanks,
