Re: 1.7 - noacl for cygdrive

Is there a way to specify noacl for any cygdrive referenced path? I have
used rsync quite a bit in the past and rather than specifying mount point

(e.g. /cygdrive/e/data/backup01). This allows me to put the data anywhere
on a drive (mapped or local) without worry about maintaining an fstab entry.
I'd like to just use the NT permissions and have them inherited rather than
my cygwin process resetting them.

Under 1.7 the permissions are being treated as POSIX because I don't have a
cygdrive entry in fstab.  How can I disable POSIX for /cygdrive references?

By adding a /cygdrive entry to /etc/fstab, for instance

none /cygdrve cygdrive user,noacl,posix=0 0 0

Corinna, thanks to your post I did that now, but unfortunately RSYNC still resets my NT permissions.
Like Rob I use cygdrive paths.

Rob, how did you manage to keep the NT permissions with your RSYNC? For me it always sets own permissions, which then conflicts with my originaly NT permissions. Do you have to specify any special RSYNC parameter?

P.S. How can I see if my Cygwin has got version number "1.7" ?
