I see. I though that it was a Windows problem that didn't provide
the partitions properly to cygwin if they weren't formatted with a
known filesystem or something related.
Isn't any other way to access those partitions even from Windows
Powershell? Is the feature to support more than 15 partition planned
to be implemented?
