Just tried Ubuntu One ver.2 on Windows 7 and got into trouble with syncing. The installer did not make any entry in the Control Panel Install/Remove programs.

How do I uninstall/remove the files/settings etc. completely?

Or choose "Uninstall Ubuntu One" from the start menu.

And then remove this folder:

c:\program files\ubuntuone

and if you're on 64-bit:

c:\program files (x86)\ubuntuone

Then in the Control Panel → Credentials, remove the "Ubuntu One" key.

Thank you all, it started with a broken installation (some files deleted) - the Ubuntu One was reinstalled and then successfully uninstalled! – Vass Bu Oct 4 '11 at 14:20

C:\Program Files\ubuntuone\uninstall.exe --mode win32 is your friend.

Have a good day.

To uninstall it manually on Windows 7:

1) Delete credentials: go to the control panel, search for "credentials", then remove the one that says "Ubuntu One"

2) Kill ubuntu one processes: Using the task manager kill the ubuntuone-syncdaemon, ubuntuone-control-panel-qt and windows-ubuntu-sso-client processes

3) Remove the c:\program files\ubuntuone (or c:\program files(x86)\ubuntuone) folder

This will only leave a couple of harmless registry keys and the start menu entries that you can delete manually.

It is easiest of you go to C:\Program Files\ubuntuone\ and double-click the file called uninstall.exe.
