Don't do that. Do not use managed mode on your old directories. It is
called "managed" for a reason. Cygwin wants to manage all file creations.
So, the only way to use it is to create an empty directory, mount it
as managed, and then populate it with files.
If this is confusing to you, do not use managed mode.
