How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

You need to use a directive like below.

uploader.directive("readfile", [function () {
    return {
        scope: {
            readfile: "="
        link: function (scope, element, attributes) {
            element.bind("change", function (changeEvent) {
                var reader = new FileReader();
                reader.onload = function (loadEvent) {
                    scope.$apply(function () {
                        scope.readfile = { "FileName"'\\').pop() , "Content" , "Size" };

For uploading the files:

function MyCTRL($scope, $http, $modal)




    $scope.fileUpload=function () 


    $scope.attachedFile.push ({

        "fileGUID": GUID() + "." + $scope.currentFile.FileName.split('.').pop(),
        "fileName": $scope.currentFile.FileName,
        "fileGroup": $scope.currentFileGroup,
        "fileDescription": $scope.currentFileDescription,
        "fileSize": $scope.currentFile.Size,
        "fileContent": $scope.currentFile.Content,
        "fileState": "wait"

    $scope.currentFile = "";
    $scope.currentFileGroup = "";
    $scope.currentFileDescription = "";

    var saveFile = new dataStructure();
    var fileContent = "";
    for (var i=0; i < $scope.attachedFile.length; i++) {
        if($scope.attachedFile[i].fileState!="sent") {
        fileContent = $scope.attachedFile[i].fileContent;
        saveFile.EntityInfo[0].Name = $scope.attachedFile[i].fileGUID;
        saveFile.EntityInfo[0].Type = "CUSTOMFILE";

            saveFile.EntityData = [
                {"Content": fileContent}
            var inputjsondata = JSON.stringify(saveFile);
            $http({ method: 'POST', url: rootURL + '/data/savefilecontent', data: inputjsondata, dataType: 'text', processData: false, async: false, headers: { 'Content-Type': 'application/json; charset=utf-8' } }).success(function (data) {
            $scope.attachedFile[i].fileState = "sent";

                "FilenameGUID": $scope.attachedFile[i].fileGUID,
                "Filename": $scope.attachedFile[i].fileName,
                "Group": $scope.attachedFile[i].fileGroup,
                "Description": $scope.attachedFile[i].fileDescription,
                "UploadDate": uploadGregorianDate()                    

And now everything is fine.

Method 2

Did you mean upload a local file from your client computer to a server? or local to local?

If it’s the first case:

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
