First you have to setup Gdrive on your computer
Mount NAS as a map network drive

with acronis true image you can backup Gdrive Path to your NAS Map network drive

or you can use bat file

Xcopy command
xcopy /e/c/y "c:\users\%username%\Google Drive" "backup destination"

for email
you can find email data path
from outlook go to account setting -data file-*pst file
after you know the outlook file from above line include it to acronis backup plan

A script to copy or a backup tool such as Acronis, Symantec or Paragon to copy the data from local GDrive to NAS share. That's all you need to do.

Actually,  you need to do more.

The Google Drive Sync client only transfers data that is in "My Drive".  Information shared with an account that has not been 'moved' (tagged, really) as part of My Drive will not sync.

Additionally, every time you run an xcopy or other copy type action, Drive will change the Last Modified date of the file.

To fully backup Google Apps to a local NAS, you will need a tool like Syscloud.  This will backup and give you access to legacy/desktop files (Office, PDF, etc), but not to Google editor files (document, sheets, slides, etc).  These tools work, but come with a price.

If your need is to protect against Internet outage, then continue to look at SysCloud or look at fail-over or emergency Internet access methods (mifi, cell tethering).

If your need is to be able to recover files that have been deleted, overwritten, or corrupted, then a cloud-based backup service for Google Apps, such as Backupify (disclaimer, we resell Backupify and Spanning), is a more cost-effective solution.  In addition to backup/restore, Backupify gives you the ability to snapshot and export data from Google Apps as well.
