      Description

      Creating symlinks to directories, during a retrieve, seems to always fail on Windows 7, even when running with the required (elevated) privileges. Instead, the fallback copy method is always used.

      Running with verbose logging reveals the fallback is used due to a java.nio.file.FileAlreadyExistsException.
