    Trying to move hosts, and many of my backups on Google Drive are no good:
    File (backup_2018-01-22-1516_Metrist_Partners_b8890c06e999-plugins.zip) was found, but has a different size (53895175) from what was expected (51798022) – it may be corrupt.
    File (backup_2018-01-22-1516_Metrist_Partners_b8890c06e999-uploads.zip) was found, but has a different size (43592096) from what was expected (41494943) – it may be corrupt.

    This has been a recurring problem for me, and I’m getting very frustrated.

    Any suggestions as to how this can be fixed?

    Hi,

    When, as in this case, the actual size found is bigger than that expected, the backup archive is almost certainly not corrupt. Rather, the message is triggered by having scanned the storage before the upload was complete… as a result, the archive found there is smaller than its eventual size, resulting in the subsequent message when the uploading has finished and the file is inspected again. As such, you should try proceeding with the restore, despite the message.
