Re: Cron only sees local HD mounts

I'm on a windows XP pro based system. I've been trying to get cron to
run some scheduled scripts but it unfortunately only is able to

I have installed cron to run as a service as myself (instead of system).
I've run all the various utilities, uninstalled, reinstalled several
cygrunsrv --stop cron
cygrunsrv --remove cron
cygrunsrv --install cron -p /usr/sbin/cron -a -D -e CYGWIN="tty ntsec
binmode" -u hyuan
cygrunsrv --start cron

Why not use '/usr/bin/cron-config', so you're sure you're not running into
some basic config issue?

I have also googled extensively. At this point in time, I am at a
complete loss. Any help would be appreciated. Could it be a
permissions/group issue? I cannot tell. I ran 1.10
and it said all was well.
Any wisdom that the group can provide would be MUCH appreciated. I've
spent at least 5 hours banging my head on this issue.

What does '/var/log/cron.log' or Windows event log say?

I've attached my cygcheck here:

Actually, we call this *appending*.  Which much prefer *attaching* to
appending.  It makes for less false-positives when searching the archives
for info on a particular package, etc.
