Upload error for seemingly random files when uploading a folder


Using Chrome, Win7
@gmail.com account
Paid for 200Gb of additional storage on google docs to use as a personal backup.

When uploading folders (with 2000-3000 files) randomly 5-20 files will not upload and receive an error.  If I go and manually upload each file separately it works.  This is very frustrating in trying to do backups.

Are these folders breaking any limits outlined below? Tha would be the most obvious answer... Sorry for the hassle! Hope I can help! dziegman

Unfortunately not.  Last night I started an upload of a 5.5 Gb folder (which contained about 4 other sub-folders and 2200 files) and in the morning it had uploaded everything except 20 files, all of which were .png pictures.  I then was able to upload these .png individually.

Thanks for the extra info! I'll take a look into it and try to respond later today... I'm on winter break and will be out with family. However, the answer does not seem obvious since png files should be supported... They do look normal when viewed, correct?
 
Or maybe not... This site says they're not supported, which may explain why they were not uploaded... http://support.google.com/docs/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1189935
 
Hope this helps!

I just checked and I can view them after uploading to Google docs, and they look fine.  It is very confusing since the 20 files that did not upload, were able to be uploaded separately and now look fine.  I don't know why they had problems when uploading within the folder??

I'm not sure either...
 
Anyone want to add to this an explanation?
 
Thanks!
