foreach (string file in Request.Files)


HttpPostedFileBase hpf = Request.Files[file];

// hpf.ContentLength has the file size in bytes

Add the following to your controller method.

var file = Request.Files["fileUpload"]; 

if ( file != null )


byte[] fileBytes = new byte[file.ContentLength];

file.InputStream.Read( fileBytes, 0, file.ContentLength ); // ... now fileBytes[] is filled with the contents of the file.



{ // ... error handling here }
