  • I guess as u are using SQL Server as DB, u might be using RAW type Column to Store the File into DB.

    To Insert any data into RAW column best possible way will be Convert Data into bytes and then write Byte
    into RAW Column of DB.

    The fetching goes in smilar manner a simple SELECT statement fetches the RAW column contents into DataTable/DataRow etc
    which will be of type object.

    Now u need to Convert Object to Bytes. That way u get the File back.
