Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Am having trouble synchronizing with the new client on Windows 7. I have added a folder from my user directory and waited for everything to sync, but all I have to show for it is a file structure populated with 0 byte size files. The root of the file structure does have some completed uploads. In all I have about 1.6 GB of files waiting to sync, and only 256 MB have come across.

Out of curiosity, how long have you been letting the sync run for, and do you know the speed of your Internet connection? –  Christopher Kyle Horton Oct 20 '11 at 16:19
It had been running for about a day and a half. I had reloaded the client a couple of times, and rebooted, restarted. It seems to be working now, but very VERY slowly. Another 200Mb or so uploaded overnight and the remainder today. Any files I add seem to take several minutes before the client starts the sync process, and can take about an hour to upload a 15Mb file. I have a 20Mb cable internet link, the upload speed is currently running at 16Mb. –  Jon Oct 21 '11 at 21:16
I have a similar problem using Win7 Ultimate, did a test uploaded the same files to Dropbox. Dropbox took 10 min to upload and U1 has been syncing for 20-30min and still says its going... sorry I didn't notice how to add a comment to the one above until I had already posted this... Sorry –  user30540 Oct 25 '11 at 15:45
This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! Instructions here. –  bodhi.zazen Feb 28 '12 at 20:27
