I'm using Ubuntu 12.10, and in the 'Privacy' settings, under 'Don't record activity for the following folders', I have (among others) my ubuntuone folder, because I use it mostly to keep a backup of work projects on my laptop.

However, it seems like the activity recording is only blocked for the folder you specify (and not nested folders)... is there any way to have it ignore all the nested folders too, or do I have to manually change the paths each time my work files are renamed?

Are you sure, because for me the setting works for nested folders too. Do you see this behaviour only in Ubuntu One folder or all of the folders listed to be ignored –  Hashken Dec 11 '12 at 2:38
