Error -36 when using Mac desktop uploader

I am getting so frustrated when I try to upload files using the desktop to upload…
I am constantly getting an error -36 message towards the end of the upload.
If I try to upload using the online uploader I have to recreate files within files - which is way too laborious!
I do not have issues uploading to my other external drive which is attached via USB.
I do Time Machine backups daily, but want to upload important files as they are (not encrypted / reduced in size).
Also the drive is constantly making a noise as though it is uploading, even when it shouldn’t be doing anything.
Very frustrated.
