comment accessing the mapped network drives using mingw shell
I'm able to access the drive from mingw shell if the drive is actually connected. That is, if I double click and open the drive in Windows Explorer and then use Mingw to cd into it, then it works.

comment Automatic upgrade of software on windows?
@grm: In the case of Linux, you get the indication to update the applications that you have installed from the distro's package manager automatically because it is maintained by the respective distro. But in Window, you only get the automatic updates for Windows OS, related Windows components like .Net and updates related to Microsoft developed applications like the Office, etc. If you install applications from other vendors, usually you get a prompt while installing that says: "Do you want to automatically update the software?".

Try creating a new file (touch ~/test.txt) and copy/paste the contents of testfile. And try grepping. See what happens.
