I am planning to keep the SD card in my computer for ever and ever.

My laptop has a 128 GB internal SSD, so I bought an SD card to extend its permanent storage.

Thanks for your advice.

I see no problem with the params themselves, but why on an SD card?
Are you planning to keep the SD card in the computer forevermore/only
when using CYGWIN, or are you looking to create a portable CYGWIN
install?  Something else?
