Did you manually add smb://modemtelecom/disk_a1/ to your list of folders to save? I think that is causing the problem. Deja Dup is getting confused by that entry (it only supports local folders).

Yes, I did.

Deja Dup should warn/ignore when the user adds remote directories then

Yeah, probably. You can't do it through the UI, so it's not a common problem. But probably good to identify them and warn.

summary: - Deja-dup fails with "The file specification cannot match any files in

As long as gvfs can see the volume, you can add smb volumes to Deja-Dup just fine

Michael Terry (mterry) wrote :

Curious. The GTK file opener dialog has two modes -- local and remote -- and we use the local one, which should not show you any mounted remote volumes.
