There is currently no easy way of doing what you want to do. Also, I need to point out that even when the Ubuntu One syncdaemon is not running, the files of the folders you've selected will still be present and anybody with access to the machine will be able to inspect them, and any changes made to the files while syncdaemon is not running will be ...

Open a terminal and type dpkg -l | grep ubuntuone-client... just kidding. Navigate to the Windows Control Panel and click the item that is—in various versions—referred to as "Add/Remove Programs" or "Uninstall a Program". You will find a list of installed software and metadata about it, including the version number: On some versions of XP you might need to ...

Try moving your ubuntu one folder to the D drive then run this command in cmd mklink /D C:\path\to\where\ubuntuone\expects\folder D:\path\to\where\folder\really\is That should make a symbolic link to the ubuntu one folder. As I side note, this is also how I move my steam games to separate partitions.

Unfortunately, Ubuntu One is (naturally) based upon the strong one-user-per-account model of Ubuntu/Linux, which it carries over to Windows. It assumes that since only you would be able to log in to your Windows account, it's safe to not ask you for a password every time. The only solution appears to make your Windows login process similar to what you do on ...

In my case it was Windows 7 Professional 64bit with all user profiles and ProgramData moved to D: drive (during Windows 7 installation). I've checked the logs at: D:\Users\Wojtek\AppData\Local\xdg\cache\ubuntuone\log and found this: exceptions.IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ...

The folder you created on the web site is not a special folder that is synchronized separately. If you open your home folder (profile directory on Windows), the folder you're looking for should be underneath the Ubuntu One folder, within that directory. Also, you should stop synchronization of the .local/share/ubuntuone/shares folder. It is a special folder ...

You want the wubi installer. A very nice guide for that is available here. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide. I suggest you read it thoroughly and then step through it. I've used this method before with excellent results for clients who wanted to try Ubuntu but were uncomfortable with the idea of completely dumping windows.

Ubuntu One FAQ makes it clear that you can select only those folders in your Home directory to synchronize. No, currently you can only select to synchronize folders inside your home directory on both Windows and Ubuntu. You can probably try symlinking/creating a junction in Windows to try put content from outside folders into your Ubuntu One folder ...

Unfortunately, according the the Ubuntu One FAQ, you can't: Can I sync folders outside my home folder? No, you can only sync folders inside your home folder. This applies to both Windows and Ubuntu clients. I'm assuming you have Windows on a C: partition and all other files on a D: (or other) partition? This is what I have set up and was ...

Mounting a drive into a folder on your home directory will work. I mounted my fixed F: to an empty folder in my /Users/username/... directory using the directions listed here. Use this link to get to Drive Management in Windows 7. That worked just fine.

We have not started testing Ubuntu One in windows 8 (since it's not released yet ;-). Could you file a bug in the launchpad bug tracker? Maybe we can figure out what's wrong. Here's the URL to file a bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntuone-client/+filebug

I had the same problem on Vista HB. Checking the logs I read something similar to incorrect bytes on some windows shortcuts (.lnk files). I removed the mentioned shortcuts and restarted ubuntu one.

This is a known bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntuone-client/+bug/852107 Apparently this problem is caused by being behind a proxy or using firewall. Make sure Ubuntu One is allowed in your firewall. If you are using a proxy, Ubuntu One does not currently support proxies (but make sure you have latest version!). Also, try this fix: Open User ...

I had the same problem on my pc running windows7 ultimate 64bit. I found out that the problem was in an error on windows firewall. It couldn't be turned on, it was disabled.

In Windows, Ubuntu One syncs your Documents folder to C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Documents by default. Assuming you've enabled Documents in the Ubuntu One configuration app in Windows. You can place a shortcut to that folder in your Windows My Documents folder. Or you can change My Documents's target to point at Ubuntu One's Documents folder like ...

Ubuntu One must be installed into the OS in order to access the cloud. If you have Windows installed on a USB, then YES. The personal cloud that brings your digital life together. For Windows XP, Vista and 7. also available for iPhone and Android Source

I had the same problem and it was solved by downloading a previous version of it. For me (Windows 7 Home Premium x64) worked this version: Ubuntuone 2.0.1 You can download from here

No, Ubuntu One does not have such a feature. The best way to do this, is to have different folders of "Work Pictures" and "Private Pictures", and only sync the ones you want on specific machines. The folder names will be the same on all synchronized computers, in the same locations, and also the same on the server. Also note, folders synchronized with ...

If I were in your shoes, I would back up the files I would want to keep, and then I would proceed with a full installation of Ubuntu. This time though, you should not use WUBI. Make sure you have a bootable Ubuntu Disk, or a bootable USB flash drive (you can make one with unetbootin). Then make sure you follow the guide available here and opt to format the ...

Hi and welcome to Ubuntu. As pointed in Deepak's answer you have to reinstall the system in order to completely erase MS Vista.

OK, I did get it working. To fix the reported problem, I booted the windows machine in safe mode and it installed fine. When I tried to run it under normal circumstances (normal boot), I got the oft-reported problem of not syncing. I then found an older version of Ubuntu 1 (2.0.3), installed it in safe mode, and now everything is working fine. Hope this ...

That depends on a setting in Firefox. You can configure Firefox to automatically open, save or ask what to do for various type of files: Edit->Preferences->Aplications Tab Tell your friend to right click the download link, and select "Save link as...", instead of left clicking.

The best way would probably be to visit the Ubuntu One Launchpad page and see if your bug has already been reported. If so click the bug report and select This bug affects X people. Does this bug affect you? at the top left. If not then click Report a Bug at the top right and provide more details. See also: ...

This is because you are using translated folder names for standard folders on Ubuntu. Ubuntu One does not rename folders when syncing to other devices. You will need to reconfigure your Windows system to point at the same folder, just sync both folders, or reconfigure Ubuntu to use untranslated folder names.
