I have a folder in my HDD which has 2.4 GB. Ubuntu One says the sync is done, but the folder in the Ubuntu One service only has 466 MB, someone explain me that?

One possible explanation for this is that Ubuntu One does not synchronise hidden files and folders. So if the folder you are syncing contains any files or folders with a period (.file .folder) will not be synced to the Ubuntu One cloud.
