cygwin sets file permission to 000

I have a folder /cygwin/d/myfolder/
And everytime I save files there, from cygwin if i do an ls -la I see that the files are given permission 000. That actually causes me quite a bit of problem as I rsync this folder to my server and none of the files are accessible. How can I get the files to automatically get a reasonable permission?

Check the "umask" for its value. You can try to set "umask 022" and check whether it works; if yes, add that to your .profile file.

umask is set to 0022 is this different from 022?

No, 0022 is ok.
If you do "touch newfile", what are the permissions of the "newfile"?
If they're OK (644), then the application you use should be checked.
