Now I can access the volume shadow copy from rsyncd. But I have to start the
rsyncd from a terminal (remote ssh session). If I run it as a service by
cygrunsrv it can't access the volume shadow copy.
It is the same in XP and Vista as well as in Home or Professional/Business
I've double check that the cygrunsrv/rsyncd runs in the same user which call
the dosdev.
Is there some special rights or environment for processes runs as service?
