Issue with Find command on windows NT
Thu Jun 8 22:40:00 GMT 2006

    I tried using find I:\<path> -noleaf -print ,but I am getting the
same error .
Part of the error is as follows.

>find I:\ode.boxster_UNITw2kMixednew_0228 -noleaf -print
find: /cygdrive/i changed during execution of find (old inode number
 new inode number -509781400, filesystem type is system) [ref 1114]
find: /cygdrive/i changed during execution of find (old inode number
 new inode number -509781400, filesystem type is system) [ref 1114]

The same output on Windows 2K client is as follows

D:\>find H:\ode.boxster_UNITw2kMixednew_0227 -noleaf -print

Thanks and Regards,

Does "find /cygdrive/i/TREEABC -print" work any better?

Just a WAG, but try "find I:/TREEABC -noleaf -print" -- you may be
into inode emulation problems on Windows NT.

Otherwise, please read and follow the Cygwin problem reporting
at <>.  There was also a message on this
list from Corinna Vinschen[1] with a program you could build and run on
your system to print the detailed network drive information -- that
be helpful in diagnosing the problem.
