1.7.9(0.237/5/3): not seeing some Windows files

Very interesting.  Thank you for that information.  My goal here is to  
run ntbackup via ssh.  Based on this information I copied ntbackup.exe  
to another folder that does not get redirected and I can invoke it  
from there via ssh.  It seems to run fine, so I question why Microsoft  
chose to make it inaccessible to 32 bit apps.  My concern is that now  
I have to keep track of when ntbackup.exe gets updated and update the  
copy.

[and some files in C:\WINDOWS\system32 aren't seen by 'ls']

Perhaps some files are "hidden" as described here:
