Re: Windows 2008 access to inetsrv directory

I have been puzzling over why a cygwin bash shell cannot access the
c:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\backup directory. I have added "Users" and
"cyg_server" account to directory permissions. I still cannot cd to or copy
from the backup sub-directory. I saw postings regarding accessing certain
System32 files failing with 32-bit apps. I tried creating a file system
Junction link to the inetsrv directory, still no luck.

Without knowing for sure, I'm going to guess that you're running on
64-bit Windows.  If that's the case, what you're seeing is not Cygwin-
specific.  It's the Windows file system redirector that keeps 32-bit
programs from accessing the ones in "System32" (oh the irony!)  If you
really want to do this, try looking down the c:\Windows\sysnative subtree
