Re: cp: skipping file 'file', as it was replaced while being copied

   I have several mounted partitions on my Windows machine (64bit Windows 7).

   Copying a file using cygwin cp , via mintty, from a mounted drive to
a local path, I frequently get the aforementioned message.

   Is the partition not properly understood by Cygwin?

   I really dislike having to use Windows in the first place, at least
Cygwin, when it works, makes it more bearable.

The actual command was (line broken by backslash by me to make it more

  cp /cygdrive/p/Engineering/Ken_Wolcott/new_Mobility_Audit_script/ \
/cygdrive/c/Documents\ and\ Settings/kwolcott/Desktop/files4trombone/.

Let me guess.  The mounted volume is a NetApp drive, no?  These are
notorious for their bad behaviour.  Of course, they aren't the only ones.
Still, it's hard to be too specific with sweeping statements without
details from your side. ;-)  Please read and follow the problem reporting
guidelines found at the link below:

Problem reports:

In addition, you can run '/usr/share/csih/getVolInfo' on the offending
drive and send that information along as well.  If you've found a new
kind (or version) of poorly-behaved drive, this information will help
Cygwin special-case it.
