Despite the APPEARANCE (*) of invoking cygpath from within a cygwin
shell, it seems the OP is actually invoking cygpath directly from a
regular cmd.exe console:

On my machine, from cmd.exe:

C:\cygwin\bin>cygpath -u \\DAEMON1\anrdaemon\.profile

On my machine, from bash.exe:

$ cygpath -u \\DAEMON1\anrdaemon\.profile

(*) [\\DAEMON1\anrdaemon]$cygpath -u \\DAEMON1\anrdaemon\.profile
    oh, look, a unix-style command prompt, aka $PS1...
