Not a problem, although cygcheck output would have sped things up.

Actually, from either a DOS or a bash (or other cygwin) shell, you can do:
tar cvf test.tar /cygdrive/c/test
Get used to POSIX paths - cygwin is a Linux emulation for Windows, and
POSIX paths will work in more places than DOS paths (not to mention that
backslashes are a pain to use on the command line with regards to proper
quoting rules between the two different styles of shells, but forward
slashes work great in both cases).
Life is short - so eat dessert first!
