Based of my sad experience with Google Drive I decided to file a refund.
I went to Google Play, chose "Report a problem", selected "Purchase is defective or doesn't work as advertised" and explained that Google Drive cannot upload some large backup files.

This is email reply from Google Play:
From: googleplaynoreply@google.com <googleplaynoreply@google.com>
To: p...j...f...backup@gmail.com

Subject: About your refund request from Google Play

We received your refund request for 200 GB (Google One), but we can't
provide a refund for this purchase because it doesn't meet with our policy.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

You can learn more about our Google Play refund policies here

If you need help activating or using an item that you purchased, it is
often faster to contact the developer directly. You can find developer
contact information on the app's page in the Play Store
<https://play.google.com/store> under the "Developer" section or on your
order purchase receipt.

To prevent accidental or unwanted purchases in the future, we recommend
that you turn authentication on

Yet another $29.99 went into a black hole for negative result.

I tried to write a [negative] review for "Google Drive" app on Google Play:

Unfortunately, posting a review functionality does not work on Google Play either: "Submit" button turns gray...

So I will post my review here:
Google Drive is not able to reliably backup large files.
Out of 22 large files 5 GB each, Google Drive was able to backup 20 files, but could not backup 2 files. That made the whole backup useless.
