If you are connecting to the NAS as a drive letter, then I suppose you could back it up to a PC using any sort of backup tool that backs up the contents of a drive. You could also write a simple backup script using robocopy which skips existing files with the same date (that's the same as an incremental backup). The net result would be the same size as the original though, you wouldn't get any sort of compression.

Really, it comes down to why you want to do this... Are you protecting against a failure of the NAS?

The term "Backup" means the methods and processes involved to copy computer data (system data as well as application data) to media other than the ones where the data originally live (disk, tape, optical, cloud). "Restore" in turn means the methods and processes involved in data recovery, i. e., bringing back copied computer data to their original location. Backup/Restore primarily serves as a means of protection against data loss, be it due to disaster, corruption or sabotage. It can also be used for recovering data from an earlier point in time and even for cloning machines or applications. There is a wide variety of backup/restore software available, from expensive commercial products to free or open source tools.
