    Now since most of the applications are using APIs for data communication between server and client, the requirement of converting files to Byte array has increased immensely. e.g. If we need to Upload a zip file to azure blob then we need to convert the zip file to byte array first and then pass it to the API who does the uploading of byte array to azure.

    Code sample for the above mentioned requirement is as follows:

     using (FileStream fs = new FileStream(filename, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read))
                    // Create a byte array of file stream length
                    byte[] bytes = System.IO.File.ReadAllBytes(filename);
                    //Read block of bytes from stream into the byte array
                    fs.Read(bytes, 0, System.Convert.ToInt32(fs.Length));
                    //Close the File Stream
                    return bytes; //return the byte data

    Here fileName is the complete path of file with file name and extension of file.
