Get this on Uploads, Checked that requestValidationMode="2.0" and validateRequest="false"

Description: Request Validation has detected a potentially dangerous client input value, and processing of the request has been aborted. This value may indicate an attempt to compromise the security of your application, such as a cross-site scripting attack. To allow pages to override application request validation settings, set the requestValidationMode attribute in the httpRuntime configuration section to requestValidationMode="2.0". Example: <httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" />. After setting this value, you can then disable request validation by setting validateRequest="false" in the Page directive or in the <pages> configuration section. However, it is strongly recommended that your application explicitly check all inputs in this case. For more information, see

I gather, you have disabled validateRequest in Web.config rather than on the page. Is it correct?

It should work, but maybe I'm missing something as well.

What happens if you disable validation on the page? maybe it will give us a clue?
