I've managed to get unison working from a windows to a windows machine by setting up an ssh server on one of them and setting up cygwin on both.

It works fine my only issue is it seems i'm stuck into referencing files and folders that reside within the cygwin /home/ directory on both machines. How can I scope to any folders on any of the two machines?

unison /home/newton/myfolder/ ssh://newton@

this syncs /home/newton/myfolder to /home/newton/myfolder on both machins where /home/newton is really C:\cygwin\home\newton

How can I sync for instance C:\myfolder2?
