write-zip throwing an exception

This is part of a script that ran nightly for over 10 months. It zips up pairs of log files and moves them to a folder synced to another machine with Box, which allows us to remove them from the machine.

In March, if threw an exception on a pair of files that was corrected by manually zipping and moving the files.

This weekend, the errors began again.

Here is a snippet of my script:
Add-Content $ScriptLogFileFull "Zipping $LogFileNameWildFull into $ZipNameFull"
Write-Zip $LogFileNameWildFull -OutputPath $ZipNameFull -Flatten -Quiet -ErrorAction: SilentlyContinue -ErrorVariable ErrorString 2>&1 | Out-Null
if(-not ($?))
{
   Add-Content $ScriptLogFileFull "ERROR zipping $LogFileNameWildFull into $ZipNameFull"
   Add-Content $ScriptLogFileFull $ErrorString
Here is the matching snippet in my log file:
Zipping C:\xyzdata\Recordings\DL14_4N_90W\20150423_201414.* into C:\xyzdata\Recordings\20150423_201414_DL14_4N_90W.zip

Other pairs of files in the directory zip without problem.

I'm using Powershell v3.0 and PSCX 3.1.0 on a Windows 7 machine. I have > 100 Gb of disc space free.

I would upgrade Powershell and PSCX, but this is running on a customer site and would require travel to fix.

Any ideas?
