Backup software from NAS to google cloud recommendation

Looking for a backup program that will backup all my data from my NAS to google cloud, synology has a option to do so, but for some reason it does not use the bucket I crate instead it creates a new bucket, and a multi regional, and seams to create extra traffic or space not sure but it cost me about $50 a month.  I switched to cloudberry whitch a licence for a year is ony $30 and it cost me for storage on google less then $2. cloudberry has many options I found useful a nice online portal but recently I encouraged a issue  with the backup, I am already emailing with them over a month and the issue is not yet solved.

Does anyone have any recommendation? appreciated.

Hi Abraham,

I've been using SyncBack from 2BrightSparks for many years:
https://www.2brightsparks.com/

I started with their SE version and then moved to their Pro version. They also have Free and Lite versions, but you'll need the Pro version, because it is the only one with support for Google Drive (and other cloud storage). Here's a comparison table for all four versions:
https://www.2brightsparks.com/syncback/compare.html

Even though you need the Pro version, it is reasonably priced at a one-time cost of $54.95, plus $9.95 per year for Upgrade Assurance, which provides upgrades to major version releases at no additional cost, as well as priority support. The Upgrade Assurance is optional...you don't have to buy it to keep using the software, i.e., the license is perpetual. However, it is a good value in my opinion, as you won't have to purchase upgrade licenses when new major versions are released. Also, the license is very generous, allowing use on five computers (for home users):
One registered copy of the software may be used by a single person who uses the software personally on up to 5 computers to process personal data (home use).
The software is extremely robust. It is file-based, doing incremental syncs periodically as files are created and changed. It utilizes the Windows Task Scheduler to schedule backups. I run numerous backup profiles during the day...every hour of every day...and other backups daily during the wee hours. It allows you to specify the number of versions of a file to keep, which has saved me many times.

I don't use it to back up to the cloud, but I do use it to back up to offsite storage (via FTP to a Synology NAS), as well as to all forms of local storage, including SD and CF cards, USB flash drives, external eSATA, firewire, and USB drives, and local NAS units. Given how well everything else works, I wouldn't hesitate to use it for cloud backup (if I backed up to the cloud, which I don't).

To see if it works well for you before buying it, you may give it a free spin, since they offer a fully functional 30-day trial:

This is extraordinarily good software...I would not be without it! As a disclaimer, I want to emphasize that I have no affiliation with this company and no financial interest in it whatsoever. I am simply a happy user/customer. Regards, Joe

Hi Abraham,
I checked My Personal Knowledgebase here at EE and found that we discussed SyncBack a couple of years ago:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28911049/Sync-computers-window-7.html

I've had a lot of experience setting up backup profiles with their GUI and find it to be reasonably user friendly, but it does have a myriad of options that can be confusing. Over the years, I've been able to figure out their many options and can probably help you through them. I always do the "Click For Options" in the upper left of the Profile Setup dialog and select the "Expert" view. Then I run through all the options in the left pane and change what's needed (usually, not many), such as "When" to set up the schedule. Regards, Joe
