- Subject: unmount drive in cygwin - is it possible
I have compiled ntfsprogs 1.12.1 for use with cygwin -
compilation went well and I know have the set of
Whenever I run ntfsresize (even just to get info on
current NTFS filesystem using -i option) I am told :
ntfsresize v1.12.1 (libntfs 8:1:0)
ERROR: Device '/cygdrive/e' is mounted read-write. You
must 'umount' it first.
However there doesn't seem to be a way to unmount a
disk in cygwin :
$ umount /cygdrive/e
umount: /cygdrive/e: No such file or directory
Maybe this because this because the underlying windows
operating system (Windows XP) doesn't allow for this
or maybe I am not using the right commands ?
The mount table for the system is :
C:\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type system (binmode)
C:\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type system (binmode)
C:\cygwin on / type system (binmode)
c: on /cygdrive/c type system (binmode,noumount)
e: on /cygdrive/e type system (binmode,noumount)
Hope someone can help - I am guessing the noumount
part is trying to tell me something - hopefully there
is a way to get around this......
