    private bool FileExist()
        string spath = System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~/upload");
        string path = spath + "/picture.jpg";
        FileInfo imageFile = new FileInfo(path);
        bool fileExists = imageFile.Exists;
        return fileExists;

    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (FileExist())
            Image1.ImageUrl = "~/upload/picture.jpg";
            Response.Write("<script>alert('Image not found')</script>");


Check if a file exists on the server in  Mvc

 //We need to convert the path to a physical path with Server.MapPath(relativePath)
        if (File.Exists(Server.MapPath("~/upload/picture.jpg")))


File.Exists() method of the File class in the System.IO namespace. Using that method you can easily determine whether a file exists in the folder or not.

File.Exists() is the popular and simplest ways to check verify file existing or not in the folder. this returns true or false in the file depending on file exists or not.

We should not use File.Exists() to validate path, this method checks if the file specified in path exists file. And return an invalid path to Exists returns false.
