There are Strange Things in various Windows directories that are a
royal pain in the arse to copy for whatever reason. It's like they
have locks or something, Windows system file-esque, that don't
necessarily live in the root of c:\. I've worked around this in the
past painstakingly figuring out what can and can't be copied and
scripting as I went.

It wasn't pretty.
