Okay, it must be windows that's having the problem.

Mine finds only folders but when that path is passed to tar, it thinks
I'm
specifying the entire folder with no restrictions.

Looks like xcopy is it for now.

Can you recommend a decent GNU shell ? When I downloaded the
GNU core utils it came with SH.EXE and I recently downloaded WIN-
BASH.EXE
but I can't find documentation. Apparently it uses different paths and
doesn't see
the .EXEs that I have in the same folder.

I guess I have more digging, but for now it's workable.
