See how this does:
Some Cygwin services normally run as the SYSTEM user, which has
certain limitations. Under the Windows authentication scheme, the
SYSTEM user cannot access network shares that require authentication.
For more information, see
Workarounds include using public network share that does not require
authentication (for non-critical files), or running the service as your
own user with `cygrunsrv'.
