My intent in setting up e:/Carchive/cygwin/managed on my 2nd hardrrive
e: is that I have a regular backup of c: under e:/Carchive/ (in
addition to regular ghost backups), and I wish to include a backup of
c:/cygwin/managed/ under e:/Carchive/cygwin/managed/. Since I have files
under c:/cygwin/managed/ that indeed take advantage of this managed mount,
e.g., mixed case names, I need such a managed mount under e: as well.
I do not see how else I can access e:/Carchive/cygwin/managed/ under the
present mounts shown below. Is there another way I should have c:, e:,
and/or /cygdrive mounted to accomplish this?

Of course not. You're accessing the drive via /cygdrive rather than
through the managed mount. The same thing would apply to binmode
or any of the other mount options.

Cygwin has a random "mean" mode. It is very effective in producing unpredictable
results with the .lnk extension.
