Seems like the latest Cygwin made some progress in automounting and
accessing the VSS volumes. i.e. under
But it doesn't let you access the volumes as block devices. The w32
name space paths like "\\.\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy" can be accessed
at cmd.exe but not in Cygwin.
I am running dd.exe to dump a VSS volume with aforementioned path and
it works fine at CMD but not at Cygwin terminal.
So, is there a way to access VSS volumes as block devices in Cygwin?
