What? Where did you get this impression?
This is not true for 18 years at least.
That is interesting.
How do I use cygwin to copy files off any eSata disk without using a drive letter?
Probably, I could let cygwin mount the fs somehow, using the volume name.
But I do not know the volume name beforehand, because they are not my disks.
