I understand how to add files to the syncdaemon.conf file in my Ubuntu system going to /etc/xdg/ubuntuone/syncdaemon.conf and adding python strings to the ignore.default list. It worked great. I use ubuntu one on my mac OS X 10.8 and it sync's great, but I dont know where to update the syncdaemon.conf in order to make skip the same files as I did on my Ubuntu machine. In the Ubuntu\ there exist about 15 different syncdaemon.conf files. Which one do I change? Is it that simple here?

It turns out all you need to edit is the ~\Library\Preferences\ubuntuone\syncdaemon.conf. This file can be edited just the same as described in Linux.
