I do not use Windows personally but my university department's labs have many Windows 7 machines. I'd like to use Ubuntu One Client there but UAC (User Account Control) stops me.

I only have write access to my home directory and C:\temp. Is it sufficient to run Ubuntu One Client?

Probably not.

As far as I know there is no portable version of Ubuntu One, that means that it will have to be installed. That will be done to the \Program Files folder and you wont get access to it if the UAC doesn't allow you to do so and if you only have write access to c:\temp.

There wont be much you can do except use the web version of Ubuntu One to manage your files.
