I am using Deja-Dup to backup my home directory to Ubuntu One. Doing a full backup seems to take at least a day.

My broadband upload speed is measuring about 3Mb/s at the moment, but when I use system monitor and look at the network traffic whilst Deja-Dup is running, it seems to only be uploading about 20Kb/s. This is making the backup unsuable.

Any ideas why it's not using more network bandwidth?

I am using Ubuntu 12.04, but had the same problem in 11.10. Backing up to a network drive on the local network is fine, so it seems that uploading to Ubuntu One is slow?

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu. Its quite possible it is a bug in Ubuntu One and the issue is not with Deja-Dup See this bug report for more information – stephenmyall May 17 '12 at 21:30
