Dear Alan,

i've tried the bug code#1872 on my machine, Jython2.5.1 many times

but running jython.bat from the dir 'c:\jython2.5.1\' as normal user
and running the code, creates and copies the directory fine.

Kind regards,

I wonder if this is the same issue as

A shutil.Error occurs in shutil.copytree on Windows 7 x64

Please can you try the code  in that bug?

It looks like #1872 has been fixed in the 2.7 branch by updating our
version of JNR.
