At my workplace, I upgraded to Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit and installed
Cygwin DLL 1.7.9. I can create files/folders in the c:/cygwin/home/MyUserName
subtree, but I can't seem to create files/folders in my personal filespace on
a network drive. My filespace is mapped to "i:/", which I access
as /cygdrive/i . I own it and have write permission, and I can also create
files/folders in that subtree using Windows Explorer. I had no problems when
I was using Windows XP (and a much older version of Cygwin).
What more can I do to troubleshoot the cause? I intend to work primarily on
the network drive because of the safety nets (can recover lost files). I need
cygwin on the local machine because I need access to it when I'm on the road.
