Hi @Vincent_Wasteels, many thanks for reaching out though I am very sorry you are having trouble.

I was able to reproduce this problem on my own n8n cloud instance running [email protected] using a simplified version of your workflow and will add this to our bug tracker for a closer look and fix.

Hi @MutedJam ,
Thanks for your quick answer !
Do you know approximately how long it will take to solve this bug ?

Unfortunately not, as our nodes team has quite a backlog at the moment it’ll be hard to say for certain from my side :frowning:

Perhaps @marcus can provide an estimate here.

Hey @Vincent_Wasteels,

I was just taking a quick look at this and it may be resolved in 1.1.0 already, I have done a quick test with both default and filesystem binary data modes and all appears to be good.

Hi @Vincent_Wasteels, well that went much faster than expected. n8n version 1.1.1 is now available as a beta on n8n cloud and it uploads a valid file into my Google Cloud Storage bucket :slight_smile:

You can upgrade your n8n cloud instance by heading to your n8n cloud dashboard and picking n8n version 1.1.1 from the respective dropdown.

Let us know if you are still running into any trouble with this after the upgrade.
