Your question seems a little unclear. Could you clarify more specifically what your question is? – Christopher Kyle Horton Jul 23 '11 at 3:53

Synchronised folders should be located in the same place (directory) among all computers where your Ubuntu One account is active. For example, if I put the following folder /home/vincenzo/mydocs/myphdthesis/ to Ubuntu One sync, then in all PCs (with the same login name), where I use my Ubuntu One account, I find all my files synchronised in the same location i.e. /home/vincenzo/mydocs/myphdthesis/.

Good luck.

I think what the OP did is Share a folder with themselves when they meant to Sync a folder. With Ubuntu One you can Sync a folder when you want the contents of a folder to be mirrored on all your Devices. You can Share a folder when you want to share a folder with another person who has an Ubuntu One account. A Share will show up in /home/vincenzo/Ubuntu One/Shared With Me. – duanedesign Jul 28 '11 at 5:15
Thank you for clarification :) I'd like to share some papers, so I will try to do so via Ubuntu One. – Vincenzo Jul 28 '11 at 7:57
