In my Note9 and many previous phones I have backed up my Excel or word documents to Google drive by choosing save as >browse>google drive > My drive > save

It works great and is easier and quicker than saving to phone storage then opening google drive then upload then find the document then choosing it

I can still upload files using the second less satisfactory method but when I choose the first easier method I get a message in office unable to copy file try again later . When I look in drive the document is there but details reveal 0 bytes and if course it won't open

I have tried clearing cache of Word Excel One Drive and Google Drive. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Google drive but keep getting the same error

Any suggestions to be able to save office documents to google drive without the error? All apps mentioned are latest versions. All have permissions checked.

I would really appreciate your help.

Can anyone still save an open excel file directly to google drive rather than save to phone then upload to google drive?
