Don't do that. The /cygdrive prefix is the default POSIX path prefix
for drives mounted by Windows. Any drive X: is automatically available
as /cygdrive/x. You can change the cygdrive prefix in /etc/fstab (I'm
using /mnt, for instance), but you can't manually mount stuff under the
cygdrive prefix path. Ths *is* documented:
Remove the above mount points, exit your Cygwin shells, and try
again. If the H and Z drives still don't show up under your /cygdrive
prefix, they are probably not really mounted in your Windows session.
