tarsnap on Windows Server 2012 R2


I installed Cygwin 2.10.0 (32-bit) onto a Windows Server 2012 R2 instance hosted on Alibaba Cloud. (It may not be the case now, but in the past, the 32-bit version of Cygwin seemed to be more complete than the 64-bit version; that's why it was chosen.)

The packages necessary to compiling tarsnap 1.0.39 from source were installed using Cygwin. The usual configure, make all, make install "dance" went off without a hitch.

tarsnap-keygen seems to work fine too (exit code is 0).

Unfortunately, tarsnap seems to hang when using the -c option. I see that data has been written to the cache directory, but that may only be the metadata, I don't know.

Does anyone have experience using tarsnap on Windows Server R2 and Cygwin?

Here is an example invocation of tarsnap that hangs:

Administrator@ab-1 ~
$ tarsnap -c --dry-run -v -C /home/Administrator/ -f ab-1-1807221600 paultemp

Thank you,
