Bug Description

The folder has been created in Drive and has some 200+ files named *.vol*.difftar.gpg, so I assume initial backup was done at least partially. But subsequent backups are failing with this message:

Giving up after 5 attempts. Error: gdata-service-error-quark: Error code 500 when querying: {
 "error": {
  "errors": [
    "domain": "global",
    "reason": "internalError",
    "message": "Internal Error"
  "code": 500,
  "message": "Internal Error"

And rarely failing with this message:

 Giving up after 5 attempts. Error: gdata-service-error-quark: Authentication required: {
 "error": {
  "errors": [
    "domain": "global",
    "reason": "authError",
    "message": "Invalid Credentials",
    "locationType": "header",
    "location": "Authorization"
  "code": 401,
  "message": "Invalid Credentials"

My guess that it may be connected with the fact that I use corporate GSuite Drive for backup and it works somehow different in comparison with regular Google Drive.
