Hi Andy.
Root of the problem is in the nature of Media Transfer Protocol. This 
protocol behaves differently than usual filesystem. For this reason 
there is no drive letter for Your Moto G in Windows, nor in Cygwin.
Best solution I found so far: install sshd on Your Moto G and use scp or 
rsync to backup files from Your android device.
I am using SSHelper.
