I just installed Duplicity on Ubuntu and got everything working. However, when I try to backup a network samba-connected windows drive, The following occurs:

Backup source directory /smb:/windowscomputer/harddrive/folder does not exist.

Here's how it's formatted in my script:

duplicity --full-if-older-than 14D --encrypt-key=XXXXXXX --sign-key=XXXXXXX smb://windowscomputer/harddrive/folder s3+http://myS3BUCKET

What can I do to make this work? I'm kinda stuck right now. Thanks!

I was able to do this after mounting the Samba (windows) drive properly.
