I just did a test by creating a "System Volume Information"
directory here, putting some files inside it and running the delete task on
it. It worked with no problems on windows.
I suggest you try doing the same and figuring out whether only the
special "System Volume Information" on C:\ gives the problem that you
mention or it happens for any directory with the given name.

In case the latter occurs (rather doubtful), just try upgrading your
java and ant. I wouldn't know what to do incase the former occurs. I can't
try your script here on C:\ for obvious reasons :-)
I can only suggest trying both the full name "System Volume
Information" or the DOS name System~1

Hope that helps,

Thank you, Tarun, but this trial fails as well.
It looks to me as if - for some reason -
Ant tries to open a dircetory
even if it should not do anything with it.
