As I put all my files starting at c:/home/sva, I'd then to mount
C: = /
So that my home directory under Ubuntu (/home/sva) is the same under Cygwin
(/home/sva = C:/home/sva).
Though, the following did not succeed:
$ mount C: / -o binary
mount: warning: couldn't determine mount type.
mount: /: Operation not permitted
Is this operation really not permitted?
