I've been using cygwin for longer than I care to mention. Never had a problem with it really as it suits me to use it for certain things that Windows truly sucks at.
However, there are a number of issues and I've tried trawling through the cygwin mailing lists which is a laborious task due to their poor web interface design.
I've reinstalled Cygwin as the 64bit version now, which aside from anything has meant that the x86 installed version is not longer needed. Deleting cygwin is reasonably easy except for the dev folder which contain nul which you can't delete. So how can I delete this?
Also as a result of the upgrade, the installation is using C:\Users\myaccountame\ for its home which means when I log in I get:
This is not what I want or what used to be there. In older versions it used to create a home folder in the cygwin folder structure and then make that the home. Now all the bash history is in my Windows folder and the bashrc is also there.
How can I get Cygwin to set the home folder back where it used to be?
