Error Setting Up Jenkins With Volumes

I am following along in a book on using Docker to set up Jenkins using volumes (yes, the book also is targeted for readers using Dockers for Windows, but not exclusively. This following command to start a container is as follows:

$ docker run --rm -d \
	--name jenkins \
	-u root \
	-p 8080:8080 \
	-v jenkins-data:/var/jenkins_home \
	-v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
	-v "$HOME":/home \

The error is reported as follows:

docker: Error response from daemon: mkdir C:\Program Files\Git\var: Access is denied.
See ‘docker run --help’.

Note that I have a GitBash terminal open in admin mode. ‘echo $HOME’ gives ‘/d/dev’

My docker config I suppose is missing something that would set up Docker attachment (?) points for host-to-container volume access away from directories (folders) that Windows generally does not want applications modifying.
