Is there a written overview, somewhere, what the rules for Ubuntu one file syncing are?

e.g. I have 3 PCs synced (3 times the folder documents), what if I save on PC 1 a file in that folder and delete it on PC 3. What gonna happen and so on? Can I recover it on 2?

Ubuntu One file sync is a file synchronization system. The goal is to keep changes in sync across clients. If you delete a file one one system it will be deleted on the server and all connected systems, as soon as possible (when those systems connect to the server, for example).

Why are you assuming that? Why not ask in a comment instead of editing the question title to say that? – dobey Jan 17 '14 at 18:50
The example. What happens with the example he exposed? – Braiam Jan 17 '14 at 18:51
