Hi there,
Can you use the </>tags and paste the code in there, It will make it easier for us to help,
Thanks. Which BSP are you using, Try to roll back.
If you enable the verbose output on the settings, The compiler output will tell You and US more.
Post the first 4 lines and the last 12 b4 the upload begins or Fails.

You can enter bootloader mode to solve the problem that XIAO ESP32C3 can’t be uploaded
