[Samba] tarmode exclude not working?

I am trying to backup a windows7 machine with smbclient.  I would like 
to exclude the "medSchool" directory.  However, using the command:

/usr/bin/smbclient \\\\server1\\D -U user -E -d 1 -c tarmode\ full -TcrX 
- /medSchool/\* medSchool \medSchool \\medSchool\\ > /dev/null

no exclusion occurs (w/ >/dev/null there for testing purposes). As you 
can see I've tried every which way I could think of to exclude this 
directory.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
