var tt = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(resourceinfo.operation.Details.PASSWORD);

now in my case if the
it will be saved inside the txt file as
so can anyone advice on this please ?


Make sure you write the complete byte array.

UTF8 is an encoding that encodes characters in 1, 2, 3 of 4 bytes. If you encode a string to a byte array you can't no longer use the original string length as an indicator for the number of bytes you have to write

 // get the bytes in some encoding
 var bytes = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(resourceinfo.operation.Details.PASSWORD);
 // write all the bytes, using the array length and not the string lenght
 fs.Write(bytes, 0, bytes.Length);

Do note that you could use a StreamWriter to wrap your filestream and have the StreamWriter handle the encoding for you.
