Yes, you can do this where it auto-syncs as a backup. There is limitation to storage of 15GB for a free account. You need to upgrade the Drive account depending on how big your NAS is currently.

1.

Download Drive for PC/Mac

2.

Install on your NAS

3.

Copy all your folders and files into the Google Drive directory

4.

Set your sharing configs

5.

Anytime you add or remove something from the Google directory it is auto-uploaded to Drive for Backup (Basically, you will have a hot backup of your folders/files at all times)
Here is the link to download drive from Google: https://www.google.com/drive/download/d

Bleow is a quick link to the Google Product Forums to assist you with NAS setup. If your NAS server is windows based, it is as simple as downloading and installing...If you have a Linux based machine, it may require more research.

What OS is your NAS on now?

Below is a Beta copy of Google Drive for Linux via Github. Also, check the Netgear app store to see if you can install something that is comparable to Google Drive. It looks like they offer a Ready Cloud service. It may be a nice alternative.

Great - thanks.

We were looking at google drive since we use apps for business (save a few pennies on storage) When we purchased the nas checking for backup to drive wasn't a big issue... since qnap and synology do it we sort of assumed that the netgear would as well. Of course they see a money opportunity (don't blame 'em) and decided to go that route.

Since this was trial location (14 to go) to determine pitfalls we will most likely go with one of the other options because of the ability to backup to drive.

Thanks again and we'll look at the github beta.
