I installed Cygwin in Windows 7 and was browsing through the
c:/cygwin/ directory in the Cygwin terminal. There exists a directory
bin/ at the path
c:/cygwin/usr/bin, but I cannot find this folder in Windows Explorer, and I cannot
ls this path in CygWin unless I am already in the
usr/ folder. It doesn't seem to be hidden, and my Windows user account is the owner of both files. Is there any explanation for why/how this folder can only be reached in a certain way?
