Get files FROM Azure to my QNAP

I'm trying to figure out how to get files FROM a Azure Blob Storage down to my device.

My scenario is that we have some backup files on Azure Storage that are comming from a SQL Server on our Azure installation, ie the files does not come from my local disk and therefore it doesn't seems like i can use any of the cloud backup apps like "Hybrid Backup Sync" or the "Azure Storage" app, as far as i get it they can only backup FROM my NAS and then restore a backup?

It seems like "Cloud Drive Sync" would be the best bet for me but it doesn't support Azure Blob Storage for some reason?

Do you have any more ideas what i can do to just download files from Azure Blob Storage to my NAS on a schedule?

Best,
Ola

Have you tried installing the Azure Qpkg which supports Azure Blob Storage?

Yes, and it seems like it only supports backup from my NAS to Azure and then restore that backup. I can't get it to work at least.

This was my bad. I realized that my files was stored a "Page Blobs" but most (all?) apps on QNAP only supported "Block blobs" or whatever they are named :)
