I saw a suggestion somewhere:
Create a folder on the cygwin drive for the drive you want to access,
$ cd /
$ mkdir d
for the d:\ drive. Then mount /cygdrive/d/ on that folder:
$ mount d:/ /d
$ cd d
ls should then give you a listing of your d:/ drive. I just tried it and
it seems to work. To unmount it use:
$ umount d:/
Hope this helps.
