Re: [Cygwin <-> Debian]: rysnc hangs when backing up multiple /cygdrive/* dirs

Perhaps you could eliminate variables from the equation to see if this is
a cygwin problem or a debian problem.  Some suggestions:

1. What if you initiate rsync from the cygwin host?  Does it still hang?
2. What if you rsync from the cygwin host to itself? (This would
remove debian from the picture)

I don't know why, but it is working now. I exluded the .lnk files and
backedup the d drive folder separately first. Then I included other
directories to be backed up. Now I am backing up only '/cygdrive/d/user1
/cygdrive/c/Documents\ and\ Settings' and it seems to be working great.

But I agree with you over the points you mentioned. I guess I will try them anyway.
