I went on the bin directory cd C:/cygwin/bin, I typed cygcheck -s -v -r

I'm getting the feeling that you're not used to Unix/Linux or command-line

The reason what you typed didn't work is because you are in a directory
which isn't in your path and you didn't say where to find 'cygcheck'.  You
need to do one of the following:

  1. Use the fully qualified path (i.e. c:\bin\cygcheck.exe)
2. Use the relative path to specify the current directory (i.e. .\cygcheck.exe)
  3. Add c:\bin to your Windows path so you don't have to do either of 1 or 2.

The funny thing is that also ls does not work..

Deleting everything can be fine, if there's no critical context.

TOFU, in general, is meant to indicate that it's preferable to trim out anything
that isn't helpful context in your reply and to reply in-line and/or after any
context you keep.  In other words, what I'm doing. ;-)
