I have a question, is there a way to tell Ubuntu One to compare and re-check the server and Pc synced files and folders to detect any diference between them?

Thanks for answering.-

A resync should occur when the Ubuntu One client reconnects to the service.

You can force this by opening the Ubuntu One control panel, and clicking the Disconnect button in the top right, and then clicking the button again (it should now have the label Connect).

Another method is to uncheck the synced folder from syncing and then recheck it again in the Ubuntu One window. On rechecking, the sync process is started again.

FYI: the method of disconnect and connect again, did not work for me, so I tried something else.
