go ahead complain to QNAP (via ticket) .. only they can add apps to the "APP Store" .. this community forum can't do anything about it

found a solution!

you can now enable google photos in drive.google.com which won't take space in your google drive. then you can use cloud sync and sync your google drive to a shared folder on your qnap. this seems to include all google photos.

Isriam are you sure about this solution? It's true that you can enable a Google Photo folder in Google Drive but according to this article from Google, the photos are going to take your limited space

I use the reduced files and that's fine for me. What I don't like is that it's this _or_ your normal folder backups, not both at once.

Has anyone tried running Google Backup and Sync in a VM running in Virtualization Station?

Sounds kind of kooky - but curious if anyone has tried this solution?
Looks promising.

https://chosenbuys.com/2018/02/01/sync- ... le-photos/

basically:
  • Setup photo auto-upload to NAS:

    Our photos are stored on QNAP in Multimedia/Photos
    Wife’s iPhone uploads to Multimedia/Photos/iphone
    My Android uploads to Multimedia/android via the FolderSync app. Steps to accomplish this:
    Install the FolderSync app from the Google Play Store
    In the FolderSync app click on “Accounts” and create a new account which would connect to the NAS Multimedia/ share. I named the account “nas_multimedia”
    In FolderSync, create a Folder Pair to upload to remote folder /android from the local Camera folder
    I set this to sync at 12:00AM, on Wi-Fi and when charging only, enabled notifications if an error occurs, set “overwrite old files” to Never.
    Setup photo download from NAS to Android phone:

    In FolderSync, create a Folder Pair to download
    from remote folder /Photos/
    to local folder /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/nas_photos/
    The settings for this Folder Pair are the same as for the first one (12:00AM, Wi-Fi, etc)
    Now all you have to do is to periodically free up device space using Google Photos built in feature for this.
