So rsync copies files to backup-monday/ fine but has trouble copying
to tuesday/ ?  That's very strange.  You might try a higher verbosity
level (-vv or -vvv), or you could trace the system calls rsync is
making using the equivalent of strace for Cygwin.  (Maybe Cygwin has
an actual "strace" command?)
