    Hi,
    I am getting an System.OutofmemoryException when using Filestream to load zip file. the file is 521MB. My code is:

    //Insert using Filestream, file into SQL Server Table
    private void btnInsert_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    OpenFileDialog openFileDlg = new OpenFileDialog();
    openFileDlg.InitialDirectory = Directory.GetCurrentDirectory();
    if (openFileDlg.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
    {
    FileInfo fi = new FileInfo(openFileDlg.FileName);
    FileStream fs = new FileStream(fi.FullName, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read);
    BinaryReader rdr = new BinaryReader(fs);
    byte[] fileData = rdr.ReadBytes((int)fs.Length);
    rdr.Close();
    fs.Close();

    My program dies on this line: byte[] fileData = rdr.ReadBytes((int)fs.Length);

    I have also attached the detail for the System.OutofMemoryException.

    I am running this on a Windows 7, 64bit machine.

    thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    As I mentioned I have a machine that has 8 GB of memory. I had to shut down my machine to take it home last night.

    When I tried to load the file again today it loaded with no problem. Normally I will only be loading one file at a

    time, but in this case I was testing my Development database and was loading 28 files one right after the other.
