Google Photos Sync with Qnap NAS
I’ve been watching your videos on how to best set up my QNAP TS-453Be. Your videos have been very helpful. Thank you.
I am at the point where I would like to sync my Google Photos and my NAS. I’ve watched you syncing videos with Google Drive, but I do not believe this is a solution now since Google Decoupled Photos and Drive. Is that correct? If not, I will just try to set-up HBS 3 with Google Drive Sync. However, if Google Photos does not sync with that solution, is there another app out there that will allow me to do this sync?
Yes, Google have blocked direct Photos and Drive Sync option. But you can still sync Google Photos with Drive using their new “Backup and Sync” App. You can then use Qnap Hybrid Backup Sync app to sync the Drive app with your NAS. If you do not want to use a computer as a middle adapter between the platforms, then you can create a small virtual machine which can run the synchronisation between Photos and Drive. Also once you sync photos with your computer, you can just back up the folder or entire PC (or virtual machine) without syncing with Drive.
I hope this helps.
