I put 3 files in the UbuntuOne folder. The 2 smaller ones (few kilos) synced no problem. The 3rd one (600Megs) hasn't, and it's been there a couple of days now. It shows the syncing icon when browsing, but the app tells me that no files are currently syncing.

Any idea what I can do to "force" or restart the syning? Or how to get something like an indicator by file being synced?

Have a look here ~/.cache/ubuntuone/log in the log files. Maybe you find some hint there what is going on.

I followed these instructions to completely remove and reinstall:

When the reinstall hung, I followed these instructions: Ubuntu One hangs at the end of installation

I then checked the status with u1sdtool --status according to this page:

Works now. Shouldn't be this difficult.
