In case of weak privilege level (UAC is on, etc.) it fails with 
"java.nio.file.FileSystemException: A required privilege is not held by 
the client" (0x80070522).
We can re-throw the exception with additional comments about 
UAC/privileges or create the manual test with appropriate instructions 
about changing the security policy or disabling UAC.
