Yes, it is possible. You can create a file without a prompt. In case of shared webhosting, you need to check whether you have permission on D drive or not?

To create a text file, look at the code below.

string sPath = "D:\txt\xxx.txt";
if (!File.Exists(System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath(sPath)))

StreamWriter objStreamWriter = File.AppendText(System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath(sPath));
objStreamWriter.WriteLine("\r\n This is test : ");

Hope this helps.

Since security is a major concern in this case, creating a file at a client machine is not possible.
Prompt for file save would be the better solution here.
