Get cwRsync to Recognize Windows Drive Letter

cwRsync is a Windows port of the popular rsync UNIX utility. On UNIX, each drive is mapped to a directory, instead of being represented as a drive letter. Therefore, cwRsync also doesn't recognize Windows drive letter.

There are two ways to transfer files between two Windows drives. One way is to map the Windows drive to a directory (much like UNIX) using the Windows mountvol command-line utility. The second method is to use the following directory convention:

/cygdrive/[drive letter]

Where [drive letter] is the letter 'a' to 'z' without the colon. All UNIX utilities ported using cygwin supports this convention. And cwRsync is no exception. An example to duplicate drive "m:" to drive "n:" is as follows:

rsync -auv /cygdrive/m/ /cygdrive/n/

Now, isn't that easy?
