It looks like you are trying to restore.  Duplicity doesn't find any
backup files on what it thinks is your backup location (the ftp
server), doesn't find any files, and bails.

To backup, you put the non-URL item first, then the URL for your
backup destination second.

So, if you're trying to backup /media/disk/libertad to your ftp server:
duplicity /media/disk/libertad/ ftp://user:address@hidden/../atma

If, however, you're trying to backup a remote machine onto your local,
connected USB drive, I don't believe you can do that.  The source
files for the backup must be local (or at least accessible by a local

No actually I was trying to backup localy a remote destination. Okay, since that is a macosx machine and has duplicity on it, it's not a problem to use it otherwise.

Now the problem is with the Windows machine. I can connect to it via FTP (MeteoFTP) and Samba (windows shares). Is there any way to get that machine's backup?
