In the past I saw
but now the win-mounts version are missing

$ cat /proc/partitions
major minor  #blocks  name   win-mounts

I have:

cygwin DLL version 2.11.2-1
Windows 10 Pro 1709 (Build 16299.846)

So all pretty recent, and it works fine for me.

Regards - Eliot Moss

Windows 10 Home
Version 1803

so or it is Windows or is a BLODA effect

As for the others, WFFM on W10 Enterprise 1809 with the latest
Cygwin snapshot code.  I'd bet on BLODA.  Alternatively this may be
permission problem of some sort.

Can you please run this command under strace and send the strace output?


attached the strace of  cat /proc/partitions

I guess my AV is blocking access to the partitions, also when
I am running as Administrator.

format_proc_partitions: DeviceIoControl (Harddisk0\Partition0, IOCTL_DISK_GET_PARTITION_INFO{_EX}) Win32 error 5

However the info is available in other way

$ cygpath -w /dev/sda

$ cygpath -w /dev/sda1

$ cygpath -w /dev/sda2

$ cygpath -w /dev/sdb

$ cygpath -w /dev/sdb1

$ cygpath -w /dev/sdb2

$ cygpath -w /dev/sdb3
