Web services have been a fast evolving field fuelled by the ever-changing customer expectations. As new technologies emerge, investigating and introducing new tools can optimize the time and improves the methods of building web-oriented enterprise applications and web services. With every such advancements, the interface used for inserting new records has to be updated to allow the user to upload a file from their computer and extra steps must be taken to display or provide means of downloading record associated with binary data, which is challenging. In this context, in this paper, a fully functional application is displayed and associated it with many types and size of data to upload by using ASP. NET. The paper reviews different techniques for storing data and explore how to enable users to upload a file from their computer and have it saved on the web server's file system. This would provide the basis for easy ways of storing and retrieving data directly within the database which involves a bit more code than working with data through the file system. Additionally, in order for a user to view or download data they must be presented with a URL to that data. If the data resides on the web server's file system, the URL would be a straightforward process. And if the data is stored in the database, a web page needs to be created and retrieve and return the data from the database. Further, if the data is stored on the file system, the demand and network congestion between the database server and web server will be less than when the data is stored directly within the database.
