c:\\windows

<file name=sed.sh>
TEST=`echo 'c:\windows' | sed -e s.\\\.\\\\\.g'
echo $TEST
</file>

$ bash -x sed.sh
++ echo 'c:\windows'

sed -e expression #1, char 7: unterminated 's' command
+ TEST=
+ echo

CYGWIN_NT-6.1 HOSTNAME 1.7.32(0.274/5/3) 2014-08-13 23:06 x86_64 Cygwin

Does anyone have a suggestion on turning c:\windows into c:\\windows?

Thanks,
