    I am trying to copy file from Picture Library folder to Document folder via WP8.1 phone app, however I am getting the Access Denied Exception.
    When I tried to copy the file from Picture Library to Camera Roll folder than the file gets copied without any Eroor/Exception.

    Below is the code that is giving exception while coping to Document folder:

    StorageFolder^ picturesFolder = KnownFolders::DocumentsLibrary;
    create_task(file->CopyAsync(picturesFolder, "sample - Copy.dat", NameCollisionOption::ReplaceExisting)).then([this, file](task<StorageFile^> task)
    StorageFile^ sampleFileCopy = task.get();
    rootPage->NotifyUser("The file '" + file->Name + "' was copied and the new file was named '" + sampleFileCopy->Name + "'.", NotifyType::StatusMessage);
    catch (COMException^ ex)

    Actually I need to copy the folder present in Picture Library to the Document Folder. Kindly assist.

    I think, the problem is that you are trying to copy a jpeg or png files to a folder that should only contain .docx or .xlsx files. Not sure but could be possible.
