[Duplicity-talk] Corrupted folder permissions with restore in Cygwin on

Good afternoon,

I'm using duplicity within a bash script in Cygwin on Windows 7. The script wraps backup and restore commands (as well as clean-up and remove-old) and I call that script in a Task Scheduler event routinely.

When I use duplicity restore on an archive set that I have previously created I've recently been having odd permissions issues. The restore appears to create 'special permissions' in Windows 7 that prevent me from accessing sub-folders of files within the restored folder set.

The restore has been working without issue for a few weeks, though I've been revising the script during the time. I'm not at all clear what has changed in my setup (Cygwin versions, Windows 7 updates, etc.) that might bear on this. I ran the restore command by itself at the Cygwin prompt, with '-v 9' and only find a few lines with 'permissions' or one of the impacted filenames (the entire dump of the verbose run is about 1.8 MB).

Any help is appreciated.
