Webdav location as a REPOSITORY?


I am not sure if what i am trying to achieve is impossible, or I just fail to configure it correctly.
I have a pcloud account that I would like to create a backup of to an external HDD.
So the pcloud account would be accessed over webdav. Is it even possible to select a webdav location as a repository and a local directory as storage?
I tried the following command (among others, but this got me the furthest):

duplicacy init -repository webdav://username@webdav.pcloud.com/ -storage-name backup-1 pcloud-backup D:\

but I always get this error (the path is obviously butchered):

Failed to list the repository root: open \\?\D:\webdav:\username@webdav.pcloud.com: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

Thank you for the help!

Duplicacy backs up local files.

You would need to mount your pcloud location as a local filesystem and initialize repository there.

There are a number of tools available to accomplish that. Rclone and MountainDuck are two solid choices.

yup, that makes sense. I guess I just got too into Duplicacy and tried to force it to be my do-all tool.
thank you for your time!
