I'm trying to copy an audio file from my Nexus 4 (Easy Voice Recorder folder) to my desktop but it shows an error.

To see if the error was consistent with all audio files I tried copying an audio file from another voice recorder app folder (Smart Recorder) on my phone and I was able to.

I'm not sure if the error was due to an app restriction. I made sure that the phone was unlocked while I was trying to copy the files. I also made sure the phone was on MTP mode so I could transfer files properly.

How can I fix this?
