this error has nothing to do with the versions, but only that the database file is still "in use" by some database
make sure that you are moving the files during the restore to another path (advanced restore options)

So are you saying it should be on my C: drive rather than a flash drive? If so, I was kinda thinking along those lines...

Check the path. If you are restoring on SQLServer 2012 then folder should be 110 instead of 100. i.e (MSSQL11.[InstanceName].

Make sure have proper permissions to create Datafiles.
