rsync on cygwin, some directories are erroring with Permission denied

I have rsync set up to sync between two hard drives on the same Windows PC.

I have a concern the results of the following rsync command:

"c:\cygwin\bin\rsync.exe"     --log-file=080725.pcsync.log --recursive --archive --modify-window=2 --update --backup /cygdrive/f/images/ /cygdrive/i/images/

This results in:

rsync: failed to set permissions on "/cygdrive/i/images/.": Permission denied (13)
rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at /home/lapo/packaging/tmp/rsync-2.6.9/main.c(977) [sender=2.6.9]

It's weird that it throws up an error in the . local directory, it seems odd that it's even syncing the . local directory.

Does anybody have any ideas why this is happening and what I can do to stop this error.

Thanks in advance.
