It is quite difficult to get an idea of the problem here.

Can you reproduce the problem? Otherwise, it might have been due to a temporary network anomaly.

I have uploaded much larger directories (in both, size and number of files) containing videos without encountering such a problem.

It is always hard to investigate a problem that cannot be easily observed, I should pay more attention to this guideline ;-)

And thank you for your answer (and for your great job!)
I had the very same problem last evening (1 video on 13 uploaded) with the same warning message.
But the problem might come from hubic network (my internet connexion is very stable).

Indeed I also have problems to download filse from my hubic storage this morning...

All the best!

I have actually observed this problem while uploading a large directory (containing over 100,000 files). The problem seems to have occurred after several hours of activity (several dozens of thousands of files were already successfully transfered).

It might worth trying to implement a more robust upload method, which can retry when such an exception is thrown...

I have the same message "unable to execute the HTTP.." when I try to download a very small directory. Only the name of the directory is downloaded. not any file inside.
when I only choose one file of this directory, it is uploaded, but its date is not the original one, but the current date. That is a real problem and I worry it is the same thing for a download of a directory.
And I have also this message when I only click on a big backuped directory in the browser. Immediately the message appears after 2 seconds. The directory is backed on hubic.
How these problems would be solved?
