You'll have to create a mapped drive in Windows that points to Linux.
Then you should be able to use the mapped drive for your backup file.
But, I can't guarantee that it will work, since I don't have Linux and
that I'm only going by what GBAK is supposed to accept as destination
path for the backup file.
