I have just installed Cygwin on my Win Server 2008. I have a bash backup script (to backup some user files to an external harddrive) that I want to run on the machine, under crontab, every night. I have just installed the base package, cron and cygrunsrv. Now I need to make crontab run. In Cygwin there is /bin/crontab.exe and /usr/sbin/cron.exe. What is the difference between these two? Which one should I use to run my backup script?
If I run crontab -e the crontab file for the /bin/crontab.exe opens. cron -e gives command not found. When searching google I find that people usually setup and use /usr/sbin/cron.exe but I do not really understand why.
