I deleted about 900 files, when I connected my computer they all started downloading again.

I don't want them to come back. In file management I only see an option to delete one file at a time. I am currently using the Windows beta on Windows 7. Once all the data is off I can switch OSs.

If I understand you correctly, you want them out of your Ubuntu One account all together? I'd say connect your computer, then delete the files and wait for things to sync the normal way. Doing it the other way around probably doesn't let Ubuntu One "know" you wanted them gone.
