I found a thread, https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2015-04/msg00008.html,
from last year where Corinna suggests the following (which works for her; she notes YMMV)
robocopy C:\cygwin64 F:\cygwin64 /e /purge /z /copyall /sl
On Win7, I'm on a old cygwin installation (thought I'd copy to more spacious disk before updating) I tried this command after ssh to an admin account, but the command terminates with
100% New File 210 shells
100% New File 1595 ssh_config
New File 668 ssh_host_dsa_key
2016/09/23 14:54:53 ERROR 5 (0x00000005) Copying File C:\cygwin64\etc\ssh_host_dsa_key

$ ls -l ssh_host_dsa_key

I don't know much about windows. Any ideas on how to get this to work?
Run robocopy as admin from an elevated command shell (bash or cmd) with Administrator privileges.
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
