Not really. The leading slash would require the pattern to match the
entire path of the file starting from the source directory (here
"/cygdrive/f", i.e., "F:\"). For example, your current exclude rule
"- Temporary Items" would match both "F:\Temporary Items" and
"F:\Foo\Bar\Temporary Items" (if it existed), while "- /Temporary Items"
would match only "F:\Temporary Items". See the first bullet in the
"INCLUDE/EXCLUDE PATTERN RULES" section of the man page for more

This is probably the same problem described in this thread:
