Your domain user SID will remain the same, however, all of the local

I would imagine all of the *files* are present in the cygwin root, but
I've never checked, and a simple file copy, even if the adjustments
are made to result in the correct permissions, will not get things
like registry entries. (I don't know how many there are, but do know
I've seen some).
Thank you, Erik -- you answered better than I could have! I don't
use a domain login, so the fact that my local SID is different has
been very plain to me!
