Updraft Plus no longer backing up to Google Drive

In June 2020, I configured Updraft Plus to backup to Google Drive. It did so once, then stopped. A friend with more technical chops than me looked at the latest log and observed, “it looks to me like it is trying to recursively back up all the directories of your site. Something in the Uploads directory is screwing it up and it is retrying it multiple times until it gives up.” I have re-authenticated to Google Drive several times. Feedback and suggestions welcomed!

The last log message: Adding batch to zip file (UpdraftPlus_BinZip): over 500 files added on this batch (48.9 MB, 3583 files batched, 501 (501) added so far); re-opening (prior size: 223835.7 KB) (Oct 15 16:38:31)

Here’s the end of the log when the last backup failed:
