# Re: 1.7: cygdrive files readonly by default

There is definitely something not right with my setup.  I have 64-bit Windows 7

e:\>echo foo > foo
e:\>c:\cygwin\bin\ls.exe -l foo
----------+ 1 vince None 6 Sep  2 17:28 foo

\$ ls -l foo
----------+ 1 vince None 6 Sep  2 17:28 foo

I've attached the output of cygcheck -s -c.

Thanks again,
Vince
