Syntax Question on 'rsyncd.conf' on Windows

Cygwin distribution of rsync for Windows contains an example rsyncd.conf,
excerpt below:

    path = /cygdrive/c/
    comment = Entire C Drive

Having trouble setting up a second Windows physical drive.  Is the
"cygdrive" designation a reference to the full system root, so that  syntax
for Windows Drive "E:" would therefore be referenced "/cygdrive/e/"?

Or is there a different syntax for non-C: drive?
