You can use smbtar which is part of the Samba distribution.

Or, use smbmount (part of the samba distrib also) to mount your windows shares. Then copy the files as on any mounted filesystem.

There is another elegant option, but it's a payware. Not expensive though. It's Arkeia. Very good professional solution.
