I am having a problem mounting a SMB directory that contains a space from the command line I have tried all of the following (USERNAME, PASSWORD are the correct username and password in my case, XX.XX.XX.XX is the correct ip address, SHARENAME is the correct share name):

mount -t smbfs smb://USERNAME:PASSWORD@XX.XX.XX.XX/SHARENAME/My\ Shapes /tmp/share
mount -t smbfs smb://USERNAME:PASSWORD@XX.XX.XX.XX/SHARENAME/My\040Shapes /tmp/share

directories with no spaced work perfectly e.g. with above command this works perfectly:

mount -t smbfs smb://USERNAME:PASSWORD@XX.XX.XX.XX/SHARENAME/MyShapes /tmp/share

I think you need to put the share name in quotes if it includes spaces:

In place of any space in the share name, type: %20
