You very definitely don't read binary file data with ReadAllText - you need ReadAllBytes[^] which returns a byte[] instead of a string.

Strings are made of characters, which are generally variable length: they could be 8 bit, they could be 16 - and reading binary data as text is a very good way to corrupt it beyond hope of recovery.

This may help: ByteArrayBuilder - A StringBuilder for Bytes[^] it allows you to apply some "structure" to a binary file and read it in a "sensible" way. If nothing else, it shows one way to handle binary data files, but if your data files already exist and you must read them, then you will probably need to take a good hard look at the file format before you get started - there will be a structure applied to it, but what structure depends on the developer who produced them!

If you are to produce your own dtaa files, then it's probably a better idea to look at using JSON or even XML instead of binary data - it's much, much easier to handle I/O as both can "fill classes" for you when your read or write the data. Saves a whole load of work!
