    I have installed this plugin (V. 1.1.12) and set up my API for Google Drive, settings say that it is authenticated. I am also seeing the "Backup directory specified is writable, which is good." However, when I run a backup, I get a string of error messages:

    Array ( [0] => Could not create plugins zip. Error was [1] => Could not create themes zip. Error was [2] => Could not create uploads zip. Error was [3] => Could not create other zip. Error was [4] => The path 'D:Hosting5671313html*********/wp-content/updraft/backup_2013-01-05-1630_********_9480662da5ab-plugins.zip' does not point to a readable file. [5] => backup_2013-01-05-1630_************_9480662da5ab-plugins.zip: Failed to upload to Google Drive [6] => The path 'D:Hosting5671313html*********/wp-content/updraft/backup_2013-01-05-1630_**********_9480662da5ab-themes.zip' does not point to a readable file. [7] Etc.
    (I've just replaced folder/path names for security)

    There have been no backup files at all created in the specified updraft folder for backups. I've checked the FAQ but see nothing addressing this. Can you help? I'm just not sure where to start looking for the problem. Thanks!
