Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Ive seen and done as suggested on this question but am still unable to get ride of the /cygdrive/c prefix.

:pwd
/cygdrive/c/Users/myname
:ls
file1
file2
...

:cat /etc/fstab
# For a description of the file format, see the Users Guide
# http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/using.html#mount-table

# This is default anyway:
none /cygdrive cygdrive binary,posix=0,user 0 0

As a matter of fact, when I add the answer from that question, my ~ directory is no longer my actual home directory!

:cat /etc/fstab
# For a description of the file format, see the Users Guide
# http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/using.html#mount-table

# This is default anyway:
none /cygdrive cygdrive binary,posix=0,user 0 0
#none / cygdrive binary 0 0

:ls
.bashrc
.zshrc

and those are empty/not my real ones! What can I do?
