Today I want to show you guys how to make the switch from your Google Photos and/or Google Drive account and onto a Synology NAS. Whether you are looking into migrating your data from the cloud to a private server because of safety, cost or the recent announcement by Google to stop unlimited photo backups in June 2021, there are lots of good reasons to make the jump. Additionally, there are several different ways to move data over from Google to Synology NAS available. Today I want to talk about two of the most reliable ways to do it, namely using Google Takeout and Synology Cloud Sync. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but below is a guide to walk you through both methods on a Synology NAS and both methods will cover Google Photos and Google Drive, to migrate your data over manually or automatically.
