So, I did a complete re-install of ubuntu 12.10 but synced all my documents and things I needed before I did so to ubuntu 1. After re-installing i though to myself 'what if instead of giving me back all my documents, it deletes them all because the folders it's syncing with are now empty'. My question is, when i sign in on my new install, will all my folders and files sync back to where they were, or will they sync with my now empty home folder and all be deleted?
Ubuntu one merges the contents of the two folders. Everything in the cloud will just download into the folders on your computer (and vice versa, if there is anything to upload). I've done this about 4 or 5 times now, it works great.
