Thanks for the help, that seemed to solve my problem.
Now I seem to be stumped by a simple problem. I have read all the cron
and crontab man pages but still cannot seemed to get my job to run every
5 minuts. The following causes the hello.txt file to be generated every
* * * * * echo "Hello World" > /home/Jarrod/hello.txt
So I would expect this to be execute every 5 minutes. It however seems
to only run at 5 minutes past every hour.
5 * * * * echo "Hello World" > /home/Jarrod/hello.txt

>From your cygcheck text, here are some of your mount

instead of "All Users". Please run the attached updated
cron_diagnose.sh script to see if it helps with your
