I use cygwin to transfer files between linux and windows machines. Everytime I transfer a file to a windows machine it adds an extra shared user icon on the file's or folder's icon itself. This also happens if I create a file from cygwin on windows using pretty much any command: echo, vim, nano, cat.
I'm thinking it has to do with permission, because I'd have to chmod it everytime if I want other applications to access the files or folders on windows.
How can I tell cygwin to create regular ol' files just like a user or any program would?
