    Hello LightSwitchHelp community,

    I'm currently involved in a training LightSwitch project for information kiosk.
    The requirements are there is no connection between the kiosks and therefore I have to make 1 separate admin page that can add/edit/delete article (which contains information as well as multimedia files - image/audio/video). Then export the whole data source to a portable drive to import into each client with 1 click (since there are 10+ clients). I have a few questions:
    - How to export the data source along with multimedia files to a portable drive?
    - Should I include the multimedia files as binary files in the data source or store them separately?
    - Is there any built-in or custom control for multimedia files?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
