On occasion I have noticed that new folders added to Google Drive result in syncing errors. When I looked further into it I discovered that the files could not sync to the new folder because of a permissions issue. The owner of the folder was not set. I had to go in manually as administrator and make the folder owner the same as the others. It never happens with the initial syncing process just to folders which are added on the Google Drive side on occasion.
Any ideas how to fix this?
