The filename, directo ry name, or volume label syntax is incorrect error

Hello All,

Am getting an error while retreiving the package from salesforce using the ANT tool as:
C:\Program Files\sample\build.xml:26: java.io.IOException: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect
This is the line no.26 of my build.xml

<target name="retrieveUnpackaged">
      <mkdir dir="retrieveUnpackaged"/>
      <!-- Retrieve the contents into another directory -->
 Line26--   <sf:retrieve username="${sf.username}" password="${sf.password}" serverurl="${sf.serverurl}" maxPoll="${sf.maxPoll}" line 26-- retrieveTarget="retrieveUnpackaged" unpackaged="C:\Program Files\sample\unpackaged\package.xml"/>

What could be the issue?
Please help as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance

Looks like it doesn't like your file path.  Check that the path is correct.  Also, it may not like spaces in the file path.  Either move package.xml to a more simple directory without spaces, or try C:\Program/ Files\sample\unpackaged\package.xml (note the forward slash before Files)
