I'm uploading a 16-gb file from a Mac machine so I can access it later from my selectively synced Ubuntu one. I created a (not synced) folder from the browser and started the upload there; I see a moving stripe "Loading... please wait" popup. When I log in from another tab or computer I don't see any partial file or increase in total usage.

I first tried this from Firefox for 24 hours and then quit and tried Safari but both appear to hang with the pop-up. Is my file even uploading?

I definitely have enough available storage.

Is there any way to see the status of the upload?

you can instal network monitor and see if it is doing something

You may want to edit this answer to explain how to do this. – Eliah Kagan Jul 12 '12 at 4:23
An upload test puts my u/l speed at 0.42Mbps. I tested small files and they all uploaded fine with comparable upticks in the Surplusmeter output. I then watched Surplusmeter with the now day-old large upload and there was no increase in u/l logged so I restarted it. Now it appears to be loading at the same rate as the smaller files. My follow-up question: might my network be periodically interrupted and does Ubuntu One recover interrupted files? It would be immensely helpful to have some status indicator instead of the orange bar. – user76463 Jul 14 '12 at 1:53
Basically, all network connections get eventually interrupted, either on your side or on the server's side. Such a huge upload may or may not work, but it's a matter of chance. – Roberto Alsina Jul 16 '12 at 16:10
