Cloud sync on external drive

There is no native integration for Google Drive, nor is there an app to do so.

But... that shouldn't prevent you from setting it up if you have some Linux-skills.
Basically you want to treat your Google Drive as a normal (network) external storage, and sync to it periodically. For normal external drives that is easily set up with RSync. For cloud storage there is a specifically designed tool called RClone.

Maybe the mods can verify, but I think you should be able to install it parallel to Volumio and set it up to sync periodically (like every night). Be careful with apt update and upgrade though.
