Psychopy crashes when trying to sync project

when I try to upload my experiment to pavlovia (using the sync button), I get the error message below. This is using the newest Psychopy version 2020.2.8

Please advise

It’s difficult to say from this error message as the lines in question are fairly general, but it looks as though it’s something to do with your resource files. In Experiment Settings, do you have any external resources defined?

sorry, this was on my office computer to which I don’t have access now for the forseeable future, so I cant test it. It hasn’t occured since on any other computer
