Thanks for responding.  But I must I'm still puzzled.  If I delete Cygwin B20 and its directory structure, what in the downloading of the various utilities builds a new structure and imposes a new installation?  Another way of putting this question:  What does the work formerly done by "full.exe" or "usertools.exe"?
