Thanks, I think this is very interesting, I did not know that such a setting existed. It was indeed disabled for my E: drive. However, after enabling it I still can’t get “cygpath -d" to work as expected. This setting also doesn’t explain why cygpath returns the correct DOS path when I pass it in a Unix style path instead of a Windows style path.
