Re: tarsnap on Windows Server 2012 R2

I copied over the .exe files, and the tarsnap.conf.sample file from the Azure instance, created the /usr/local/tarsnap-cache directory, and created a /root directory for the key I generated. Unlike before (when I had "successfully" compiled tarsnap using Cygwin 32-bit) tarsnap worked without hanging. But 2 GB seems to be inadequate for compiling the tarsnap suite, whereas the 3.5 GB on the Azure instance was sufficient.

Thus, finally, I am running tarsnap successfully within Cygwin 64-bit on an Alibaba Cloud instance running Windows Server 2012 R2 with 1 vCPU and 2 GB memory.

Thank you for your assistance.
