Fakepath issue, actually is not an issue

Some browsers have a security feature which prevents HTML/javascript/PHP from knowing your file’s local full path. This is necessarily not bad for a developer as you still could upload the files. Looking at it as a client, you wouldn’t want the server to know about your local machine’s file system.

If you really want to see the path, you could simply go to Internet Explorer, Tools, Internet Option, Security, Custom, find the “Include local directory path When uploading files to a server” (it is quite a ways down) and click on “Enable” .
