I wanted to test the UbuntuOne Streaming service but my music folder is much bigger (50GB) than my free capacity. Is there a way to select multiple folders in my music-folder and add them to the sync-list, so that they are uploaded to the cloud? I can only select single folders but thats too much work to fill my 20gb of space. does anybady of you have any ideas?

Are you trying to add these from the Ubuntu One control panel app, or from within the Nautilus file manager? – dobey Oct 16 '12 at 21:57

Right now I'm not with my PC, so I'm not completely sure, but have you tried to select a couple of folders in Nautilus and then right click? If it's possible to synchronize more than a folder at a time this is the way. Otherwise you have to select one folder at a time.
