If it's really mounted (for example, back in the old days nautilus
didn't mount smb shares, although it could access them just fine) - all
you need to do is to run 'mount' and examine existing mountpoints.
Presumably your devices are mounted either somewhere inside your $HOME,
or inside /run/media/$USER. And if you get a mountpoint - it's a simple
matter of running 'rsync -Hax $MOUNTPOINT $YOUR_BACKUP'.
