Cygwin ccrypt differs to linux ccrypt
Fri Jun 28 09:49:00 GMT 2013
Thanks for replying Marco, I wanted to post my own reply but didn't know how!
I feel like a bit of a moron now, it wasn't anything to do with
ccrypt/cygwin it was to do with file read and write permissions... so
needless to say, once I had sorted that, all was well.
I've not made a file permission stuff up in a long time, so hopefully
that's it for another year or two :D
