File won't print on my Prusa Mini - just sits there and waits

I'm having issues with a few files on my Prusa Mini. I try to print, the display just shows 0% with no obvious "stuff" going on. The temperature never changes (if I preheat, it doesn't go down; if I have it cold, it doesn't go up), and nothing moves.

This is a semi-random occurrence; it tends to be the same files, but it doesn't seem to matter what type of file (i.e. geometries, support vs. no support, etc). I even tried to do a "repair" in PrusaSlicer. Seems like many of the STLs from here are problematic, though I have been able to print a few, with PETG: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3901329

The Gcode for one of the files is here:  https://drive.google.com/open?id=1DxQWOcFqew0KBYITmc1CG7vzBSSazr7J

What am I missing?

Do you have file in 2nd folder from root? Mini does not print files from 2nd folder. Only from root and 1st folder from root.

 

Eg:

/file1.gcode

/Model01/version1.gcode

/Model01/Version2/version2.gcode

From these files, version2.gcode is not printable, it will be shown on menu, you can select it for print, but printer for some reason wont start print.

You’re a genius! That solved the problem. 

Odd thing is that I have been able to print from sub-folders before but inconsistently—so at least now I know to stop doing that.

Thanks so much!
