You are not the first to get confused between byte[] and ByteArray.  The VaultFileBrowser sample in the SDK has an example.

 

The basic steps are:

  1. Read in the local file as a byte[].  You can do this using a System.IO.FileStream or calling System.IO.File.ReadAllBytes.
  2. Create a new ByteArray object and set the 3 properties.  For simplicity, I suggest not using compression.
  3. Pass in the ByteArray object to the Add or CheckIn function.
