I'm running on Win2000 using an up-to-date Cygwin install.
When I issue this command:
The contents of the last directory on my D: drive aren't reported.
for instance, if /cygdrive/d contains:
[d] $ ls -l
drwxr-xr-x 4 scott Domain U 0 Jul 24 2001 RECYCLER
drwxr-xr-x 1 scott Domain U 0 Jul 23 2001 System Volume Information
drwxr-xr-x 21 scott Domain U 8192 Apr 7 14:21 scott
drwxr-xr-x 3 scott Domain U 4096 Mar 25 15:25 tmp
drwxr-xr-x 14 scott Domain U 4096 Apr 3 10:01 workspace
... the above find command finishes off with:
Even though the 'workspace' directory has lots of stuff in it!
Meanwhile, if I add a directory to /cygdrive/d
$ mkdir /d/zzzzzz
...then the 'workspace' directory is included in the output, but the
'zzzzzz' directory's contents are not. What's more, 'zzzzzz' has to
be a directory; if it's a plain old file then find's output ends with
This only seems to happen on "root" drive letter directories;
I experimented in some sub-folders and couldn't break it.
Can anyone else reproduce this one?
