I've just installed the Ubuntu One Mac Beta client and it syncs a folder called ~/Ubuntu One.

However, I don't want this folder in my home directory. How can I move it or rename it so that another folder is my only sync'ed folder? For example, if I don't want ~/Ubuntu One, but I want a sync'ed folder called ~/Cloud/Ubuntu/One?

I don't have Ubuntu One for Mac, but I did try it for W$. There you could basically choose any folder in the home directory to be synced. – don.joey Aug 22 '13 at 10:11
