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 ...

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.

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 ...

Please try again with version 3.0.0 which we released yesterday. ... just to clarify, I'm the Engineering manager for the Desktop+ group in Online Services at Canonical and this issue should be fixed with this version.

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 ...

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 ...

(community wiki - converted OP comment to answer) One solution I found By placing the music folder outside my ubuntuone folder, you can share it separately. You can enable/disable syncing to this folder on every device.

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 ...

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.

You can't delete Vista right now because you installed it using wubi. If you want to keep only Ubuntu, you will have to reinstall Ubuntu. First make a bootable disk or USB. Then boot from that. And select erase Vista when choosing installation option.

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. Problem seems to be resolved so far. Hope this helps, I found my ubuntu one logs from the following location ...

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

You can install Ubuntu One client on the Windows machine and sync the folder

Go to Ubuntu One website and remove here the folder: https://one.ubuntu.com/files/ This should delete these files definitely.

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.

I had the same problem on my pc running Windows7 ultimate 64bit. I found out that the problem was an error on Windows firewall. It couldn't be turned on, as it was disabled. It had to be re-enabled, so I did it and it worked for me. I hope it'll work for you too: Go to Start->administrative tools->services->windows firewall. Right click on it and select ...

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 a similar problem. I removed the folder xdg from %User Profile%\AppData\Local (shut down all ubuntuone processes to be able to delete it). After that open the Ubuntu One Control Panel and continue the installation.

You would have to: 1) Stop syncing the folder to your computer 2) Rename it Windows: quit ubuntuone-syncdaemon first by running the following command in Program Files\ubuntuone\dist: u1sdtool -q Ubuntu: open system monitor, click the "Processes" tap, then perform killing the ubuntuone-syncdaemon. On Ubuntu one app: un-tick the sync locally from the folder ...

This is a known bug that is triggered by your account name. We are doing a release next week that has a fix for this.

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 ...
