I don't think there is a way to do that in JS. It would be huge security risk. Just let user choose where file should be saved

thank you for the reply....

but In my application i giving a backup operation operation so that the user can get backup of database
in aperticular location...In order to implement this i am giving browsing option to select the location where this backup file should be generated...

I'm not sure I'm following you... Why don't you just let user download file and save it wherever?

the application is like..........

using the application a user will enter some data.if he wants to get the total data which is in the database.So to do this the application providing an option to select location using browse button where the whole data will be saved as zipped file

You won't be able to achieve that using JS. Workaround would be to zip your file, place it somewhere on server and let user download it.
