Question Deleting files via a scheduled task

I've configured the security adviser on my NAS to run a scan every night at midnight, and e-mail the results.

I've set it to store the files in a folder in my home directory, which is mapped as a share on my laptop.

I now want to delete all the reports at 11:30 every night, but I can't get this working for some reason.

I've written a bash script in an attempt to do this, with the following command in it:
rm -rf volume1/homes/vista/drive/reports/sareport/report/daily/*

I've then created a scheduled task, and set it to run the file at 11:30 every night.

However, I'm getting the following error when the script runs:

Current status: 127 (Interrupted)
Standard output/error:
bash: /homes/vista/Drive/ No such file or directory

Does anyone know where i'm going wrong? I did think it could be due to the bash script not being executable, but i've set the executable bit on the file while logged in via ssh.
