I had my Documents folder synced in 11.10. I erased my harddisk before installing 12.04. I then set up U1 the same way and waited to get my files transferred to my hdd. It's really slow and I neither see some kind of progress bar or percentage shown nor do I know the exact speed of the download. I don't have a slow connection here. Is this normal?
