I have added a folder outside the default folder. After a while it showed up on the website and after restarting the client on my machine it showed up there, too.

It says "File Sync is up-to-date" but none of the files in the added folder are being uploaded.

Edit: Here are some logfiles




syncdaemon-exceptions.log is empty

I assume you are talking about Ubuntu One.

Have you visited the web interface

If you try clicking on the folder name, it should open it (and expand its contents)

Edit 1: Just as a side note: You can only sync folders inside your home folder. This applies to both Windows and Ubuntu clients.

Edit 2: Are you running it across a proxy server?

Edit 3: Can you post the contents of AppData\Local\xdg\cache\ubuntuone\log please

Yes, I have tried that, the files are not there. The folder is about 200MB of documents and pictures so it should have taken some time to upload them. Still says: "up-to-date". – flayn Oct 12 '11 at 19:35
In response to your edit: no proxy server. The folder is a subfolder in my Documents folder. Thanks for trying to help me! – flayn Oct 12 '11 at 19:40
Can you post the contents of: AppData\Local\xdg\cache\ubuntuone\log please. (You should remove any personal details if applicable) – BrownE Oct 12 '11 at 19:48
I'd suggest you uninstall and start again. – BrownE Oct 13 '11 at 2:40

Problem solved: Everything works fine after I booted the machine this morning!

Should have known it, it is a Windows machine after all...
