First of all I would like to thank you for such a great defragging tool. I cant beleve I have gone all this time without knowing about it.

I have noticed that JKDefragCmd does a great job of defragging and optimising the HDD, however it seems to miss the 'System Volume Information' directory. The log reads:

A user cannot browse to the directory, so I assume you are getting the same permissions error. However the built in windows defragger seems to manage it without a problem, so there must be a way of doing it.

This isnt really a big deal, as these directories are rarely accessed. I simply thought it may be worth pointing it out to you as it seems to be the only thing that this tool cannot manage.

Actually these files can be moved. I don't know why some of them are unmovable, maybe Windows just has a write lock on them. It may also depend on the Windows version you're using (like you can only move the USN journal under Win7).
