The FileUtils use input and output streams which are closed within the try block instead of a finally block. This patch moves the close into a finally block to make sure that system resources get freed.

Just as a comment, one may want to revisit the class and change the catching of Throwables to catching Exceptions instead, as Errors should usually not be caught by an application.

Close streams in finally block.
Close input and output streams in a finally block so that they do not linger around and occupy system resources when an exception occurs.
