I am having a problem backing up my windows VE using vzdump.  Using the 
following line, the backup never finishes:

/usr/sbin/vzdump --snapshot --storage proxmox_backups --bwlimit 30000 
--size 1024 --maxfiles 3 --mailto smiley at npr.org 103

I found this post from the forums which indicates that it may be because 
we have drives mounted via samba or nfs:


Does anyone know how I can backup the running VE without having vzdump 
try to backup the mounted drives as well?
