I recently installed 11.04 on my new computer. After I installed copies of my files from an older computer, Ubuntu One insists that the files on that site are newer than the ones just installed on my new computer. I want the computer to have preeminence. Why are new files I just edited deleted from my computer? I want to back stuff up not delete it to make my computer look like what's on Ubuntu One! ---gk

From the bugreport:

  1. Open (or create if it doesn't exist): ~/.config/ubuntuone/syncdaemon.conf

  2. Add the following 2 lines to this file and save:


    log_level = DEBUG

  3. Restart the Ubuntu One client

  4. Try to reproduce the behavior you've been seeing and then attach the following log file: ~/.cache/ubuntuone/log/syncdaemon.log to the bug.

Is is also discussed on ubuntuforums here:

All from 2010 but I do not seem to be able to find a fix for this(...)
