Unable to remote sync

I think this software is a big improvement on WebcamXP and Webcam 7 but I’m having a problem getting it to sync remotely. I’ve tried both Google Drive and FTP and also tried a network share. Apart from seeing a few images appear in my Google Drive on the very first attempt now nothing seems to work.

I get errors in the logs

Google Drive Uploader >> Error in DeleteRemoteItem /Netcam Studio/Motion/20150713/15
FTP Uploader >> Unable to Connect

I can connect with Filezilla and to GD through the browser so I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.

has anyone else had problems with FTP and/or Google Drive? Is there anything I should be aware of?

Thanks in advance.

UPDATE: Of course as soon as I post this question, Google Drive starts working - still no luck with FTP though

Gaaah never mind - restarting the service seemed to do the trick
