[SOLVED] Umbraco 7: custom dropdown dynamically populated from Items in a specific node

I have a "Language" document type, and under my site's Content I have a folder called "Languages" which contains all the languages we support.

I created a custom Data Type called "Languages Dropdown", and I want this dropdown to be populated from the instances of "Language" present at a specific path.

This is my default Sitecore thinking in action. Is such a thing even possible in Umbraco?

After the restore I have this error. It errors when I try to log into the Umbraco backend. The Umrbaco.sdf file is only 64KB is that normal? It seems like Azure deleted some of the tables from the .sdf file on restore? In the meantime my site is down and there's no hope in retrieving all my data in my db. Help please!
