Suppose I'm using the Update function.
On the left is local drive, on the right is Google Drive.
If on the left there is a file called something like "20.0524 parents.mp4" it is ignored and it will not sync to Google drive. If I rename the file as "200524 parents.mp4" then it will.
This does not happen if the right side is an external hard drive - it only happens with Google Drive.

Can you attach a picture(s) of the comparison window? It may be a limitation of Google Drive, as periods are frowned upon in file names.

I have no idea why, and this is maddening and bizarre, but today, after a restart, it works. Completely insane. Thanks for your reply, and I'll screenshot it if it happens again. Cheers.
