        success: successHandler,
        error: errorHandler

function successHandler(data, textStatus, jqXHR) {
    var digest = data.d.GetContextWebInformation.FormDigestValue;
    var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();'GET', fileContentUrl, true);
    xhr.setRequestHeader('binaryStringResponseBody', true);
    xhr.responseType = 'arraybuffer';
    xhr.onload = function(e) {
        if (this.status == 200) {
            var arrayBuffer = this.response;
                url: restUrl,
                method: 'POST',
                data: arrayBuffer,

                    'X-RequestDigest': digest
            }).done(function(postData) {
                Console.log(“Copied successfully”);
