Crontab issue


I would greatly appreciate if you can help me with the Cygwin Crontab issue:

1. I have no problem with Crontab running cp from local to local;

2. I have no problem with running cp from other server to local, from
command line:
$ cp -p "/cygdrive/j/Move To Fileshare/bmf70.mdb" "/cygdrive/c"

3. the same command DOES NOT work on my local Crontab:
59 * * * *  cp -p "/cygdrive/j/Move To Fileshare/bmf70.mdb" "/cygdrive/c"

here is the local Windows Event entry produced:

The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( /USR/SBIN/CRON ) cannot be
found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or
message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. The following
information is part of the event: /USR/SBIN/CRON : PID 2228 : (<my NT
account>) CMD (cp -p "/cygdrive/j/Move To Fileshare/bmf70.mdb"

Thanks very much,
