It should be dir "\\.\c:\" and it works just fine. See also:

The UNC syntax is used to access network drives on Windows like so:

  \\ComputerName\SharedFolder\Resource

Stock Lua does not have any problem with UNC paths, so this looks like
a bug in luatex but I couldn't locate it in the sources so far.
