    When I attempt to copy/paste a file in the WhatsApp Documents folder to My Documents folder on my PC, I get an error message:
    "The requested resource is in use"
    Is there a way around this problem?
    Note: I have connected my phone (a Smasung Galaxy J1 Mini) via a USB Cable.

    I would say that the file you are trying to copy and past is in use (Open).
    Try closing the file or the program to see if that solves your issue.
