Modify your URLs to use below code:-

<asp:Image Width="100" ID="Image1" ImageUrl='<%# ((FileInfo)Container.DataItem).FullName %>' runat="server" />
<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" Text='<%# ((FileInfo)Container.DataItem).Name %>' NavigateUrl='<%# ((FileInfo)Container.DataItem).FullName %>' runat="server"/>

Here we are telling the Controls to use which property of DataItem(FileInfo) in your Container(ArrayList) to bind.

After appending the code, the error is

: The type or namespace name 'FileInfo' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) <asp:Image Width="100" ID="Image1" ImageUrl='<%# ((FileInfo)Container.DataItem).FullName %>' runat="server" />


<ItemTemplate>

<asp:Image Width="100" ID="Image1" ImageUrl='<%# ((FileInfo)Container.DataItem).FullName %>' runat="server" />
<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" Text='<%# ((FileInfo)Container.DataItem).Name %>' NavigateUrl='<%# ((FileInfo)Container.DataItem).FullName %>' runat="server"/>
</ItemTemplate>
<ItemStyle BorderColor="Brown" BorderStyle="dotted" BorderWidth="3px" HorizontalAlign="Center"
VerticalAlign="Bottom" />
</asp:DataList>
<asp:TextBox ID="t1" runat="server" Text=""></asp:TextBox>

You no need to have 2 controls image and hyperlink separately.  Instead you could use Hyperlink control with ImageURL. Please do refer the link

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.webcontrols.hyperlink.imageurl.aspx

Hence please do remove the image and specify the image url in the Hyperlink itself.
