The client side path in not exposed, this is part of the flash player security. And of course there is absolutely no real reason why you would want to know that.

If you knew the path that wouldn't help you achieve that at all, because it would work only if the server and the client are the same machine.

The current implementation of Flash upload (version 9) does not allow access to file bytes before the upload is done (to show the thumbnails before the upload). Silverlight allowes this but not flash 9. I heard that they want to change that in Flash 10.
