With pCloud’s lifetime offers, having 10 TB in the cloud is now within everyone’s reach and is much more interesting over time than other cloud offers.

So how to automatically back up your Synology NAS to pCloud without developing rclone scripts? Here is the trick…

Backup your Synology NAS on pCloud

pCloud offers

The pCloud lifetime offers are financially interesting to make backups when it is not possible to host a backup NAS with someone else.

You can check our article to get 10TB lifetime on pCloud.

Connect NAS and pCloud with MultCloud

MultCloud is an online application that allows you to connect all your cloud drives and transfer or synchronize files from one cloud service directly to another:

  • Transfer files directly from one cloud drive to another.
  • Sync clouds and schedule backups between clouds

You can also manage online files from multiple clouds under one virtual roof with the following functions: upload, cut, copy, paste, move, delete. Rename, etc.

Since pCloud is natively supported by MultCloud, as well as NAS in FTP or WebDav mode 🙂 it is a great solution to make the two communicate.

In 5 or 6 clicks, you can add pCloud and Synology NAS (in Webdav over https) and schedule the appropriate sync task (partial, cumulative, simple, mono / bi directional: your choice!).

Tip

The trick is not to try to “push” the data from the NAS to pCloud (because the webdav protocol is totally unstable on the pCloud side), but rather to let pCloud “come and get” the data to be backed up on the NAS, via the Synology NAS webdav which works correctly.

Beware, this requires to make the Synology NAS accessible from “outside”, and to set up this access correctly.

Conclusion

Backing up a Synology NAS in the cloud is feasible without programming complex scripts. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
