One difference is that the FileUpload sets the encoding of the form to multipart/form-data. If you use the HTMLInputFile, you have to manually add  enctype="multipart/form-data"

Also, HTMLInputFile gives you backward compatibility(if you are using ASP.NET 1.1)

Posting filepath in file upload control in .NET to the next page and uploading the file from second page
In our application (using C# .NET) there is a form with file upload options.
