I don't think you can while Chrome book isn't a windows or Mac computer.

I don't have a modern Chromebook that supports running Android apps - but if you do, see if you can install and use the 3rd party app called FolderSync.

I use this app daily to backup my HanDBase databases from my phone to cloud, then schedule them to sync onto my old Android tablet... and vice versa.

Thank you

From where do you initiate the sync: Could or Smartphone
How do you keep backups of deletions
Thank you.

I tend to initiate an upload of the latest version of a database on the device I performed the edit.

For syncing changes on another device; I either perform this manually or set it up to do so on a regular timed schedule (pick a frequency that suits you).

Backing up of deletions? I don't.

For local sync you could also look at SMBsync2
