Having looked through everything all I need to know is how does Ubuntu One work? How can I see what files have synced and how do you replace them on the computer if lost (restore).

You can login to Ubuntu One's website to view all of your synced files and folders between devices.

The Ubuntu One control panel provides the desktop experience, and on a new install of Ubuntu (or Windows etc) the control panel will show you the same folders that you have synced on other devices: selecting the checkboxes will download the folders locally and continue to sync them (restoring).
