Back up files with file history in windows 10

I want to start using the file back up program in windows 10 to back up a user files. I have a Nas that’s about 3 TB, and it is accessible to anyone that knows the IP address. If I put the username and password on this Nas to access it then I would assume the back up program on the User computers won’t be able to access the Nas. How would I get around this?
Who is Participating?
Normal procedure is: join the NAS to active directory (see the manual for a how to), create a share with folders for each computer and let only a backup user access the folders. Alternatively, for more security, let only the system account of these computers write to the NAS.
Map the drive as a network drive with the Reconnect box checked and password saved so that the user remains authenticated.
