It appears your permissions are incorrect.
If using IIS web server, then see this tutorial for changing permissions for your web root.

I'm not sure why would you want to use cygwin on a windows 2008 server. That is odd. It will cause more headaches for you. I suggest using Linux instead.

Did you find out who owns the folder and try to change permissions?
