Yep.  Think about it.  I suggested that you NOT to use cmd and you used
cmd.  I suggested that you not to use \ and you used \.

"dir" is a built-in for cmd.  It is not a Cygwin program and it doesn't
become aware of Cygwin conventions just because you ran it under bash.
If you want to look at the files on your C drive the cygwin command
would be

ls /cygdrive/c

Forget about cmd and forget about \ if you are trying to use Cygwin the way
it was designed to be used.
