Parse Errors uploading to Google Drive

Post by Tyree »

Out of the thousands of files I have uploaded over the past month to Google Drive, there have been a handful of files that persistently throw the same error when being uploaded: Failed to copy from Source : parseError: Parse Error

If I run the same profile over and over the exact same file(s) will always throw the error. So far I have just made sure the file was uploaded and then excluded that file from the profile. Not a great solution, but it eliminates the profile constantly failing.

Below is the full error. Any idea why this is happening? Thanks!

Code: Select all

Failed to copy from Source : parseError: Parse Error
