i read that usb devices should be auto-mounted in cygwin to their drive letter, such as /cygwin/g but that isn't happening for my damaged USB drive. i am trying to clone it using ddrescue. ideally i could run this from windows so that I can still have access to my computer instead of from a rescue disk, since i expect the clone of a 450gb to take days.
disk management recognizes the drive as physical disk #2 and assigns it a drive letter G:/
how can i mount this drive in cygwin so that i can image it?
