I'm using Cygwin on Windows which I just downloaded and I'm trying to set
up an rsync backup. I'm using an .bat script to copy the files, but it
gives the error message:

Skipping directory /cygdrive/d/user_dpl

Following is the script:

@echo off

C:\cygwin\bin\rsync.exe -e "/usr/bin/ssh -l dplbackup" /cygdrive/d/user_dpl electric:/raid/backups/dpllaptop

I'm confused, since it should not be skipping anything - I no excludes at
