I am pretty sure there is some fundamental problem, but you never told us what exactly your setup is. FWIW, I sometimes get these doubled up prefix paths since I installed cygwin-setup and cygwin-mount from the EmacsWiki in operations that are completely unrelated to org (I haven't had time to investigate), but then it works for the same path if I try the same thing a bit later. Also, as has been mentioned before, you might want to check where the string "c:\dropbox\org" comes from, since Emacs would normally expand it as "c:/dropbox/org", so it seems likely that you pull it in via a Windows environment variable or it is quoted once too many. Lastly, it is not a good idea to give such DOS paths with "\" to bash, as bash has totally different quoting rules than DOS cmd.
