Now that Ubuntu One is dying, I wanted to remove the Ubuntu One indicator. I realized that the above methods either hide the indicator or remove the application, not the indicator itself. So to remove the Ubuntu One indicator from the top menu bar: sudo apt-get remove indicator-ubuntuone

Ubuntu One has been removed from 14.04. You will no longer be able to get the app, using Software Center. However, You might like to access/restore your data using (at least) following ways. Install UbuntuOne client on on other OSes (Like Windows, Android) and sync. Use a live cd of an older version of Ubuntu and Install UbuntuOne (I haven't tested but it ...

You cannot sign up for Ubuntu One file sync any longer at this time. Creation of new file sync accounts has been disabled.

There is a script to download all files of a single Ubuntu One folder through the web interface. See blog post for more details. I have tested it again and it doesn't seem to work with Firefox as stated in the post but only with Chrome. Haven't tested it but might also work with Chromium. Here in brief what you need to do: Go to blog post and store link ...

Ubuntu One was announced to be discontinued (file-sync-cloud and mp3 store at least), but it isn't completely discontinued - see this page where they advertise "cloud-syncing database api", and not just files. You should download all your data from U1 while you can. :( Hopefully they're making something even better soon.

If you have google accounts, try google drive. It's easy to use and user friendly. Also read this

Yes, dropbox is a good replacement for ubuntu one, as it provides its own desktop app while google drive doesn't give support.

No, you cannot get previous versions of files, as Ubuntu One file sync does not support file versioning. If you want previous versions of the file, you will need to grab them from a computer you have, which has them, but which has not synchronized the latest version. There is no other way to restore previous versions of files.

Once all the source code is released (server side currently isn't open source) then yes. But there's no guarantee that the community will maintain the code once it's open sourced. This is not to suggest any lack of faith in the community but that other open source options exist, more of which later. There are several alternatives that are worth exploring. A ...

The client packages for file sync have already been removed from the 14.04 archive, yes. However, if you upgrade, the client will not be removed unless you choose to allow it to be removed during the process. Contacts sync has been shut down for a long time already. You are not using it on any current phone version of the client with Ubuntu One. Also, the ...

There will be a feature to download all your files easily, prior to all the files being deleted. Developers are working on the feature, and it will be deployed as soon as it is tested and working. You will be able to then download all of your files as a single .zip file.

After June 1, the local client won't be able to connect to the server. So, on July 31, the data can only be deleted from the server, because the client won't be connected, and thus won't be able to synchronize any deletion that happens.

Install the ubuntuone-client package, sync and uninstall. I'm not sure if the client will be removed from the archives, but it will no longer be installed by default and will be uninstalled in an upgrade. Considering the fact that the Ubuntu One service will be open sourced, it seems strange that it should be removed from the archives.

I have just started using btsync. It is working quite well! The desktop version requires some configuration of permissions. There is also Android apps: btsync and tomdroid. I am quite excited that this has worked for me, and relatively simple to setup, no server required. In the past I have tried a lot of things. I still use Lucid on one of my machines so ...

Yes, it is real. For more information you can read Canonical's Blog about it. http://blog.canonical.com/2014/04/02/shutting-down-ubuntu-one-file-services/

Another way using the graphical interface is to install Dropbox on your system, create a folder within the Dropbox folder. After doing those steps point the backup to it using the custom location choice. After the backup is complete the Dropbox client will automatically upload the backup to the cloud.

The Linux kernel supports something called Inotify. Using it, you can tell the kernel to notify you when something happens to a file or folder. So you can do something like "Whenever a new file is placed in this folder, or whenever a file in this folder has been changed, run the following action". You can be notified when a file is created, read, written ...

Deja Dup is just a front-end (and configuration helper) for Duplicity. From its --help, you can see what it supports: cf+http://container_name file:///some_dir ftp://user[:password]@other.host[:port]/some_dir ftps://user[:password]@other.host[:port]/some_dir hsi://user[:password]@other.host[:port]/some_dir ...

You cannot self-host the server currently. It will be released as open source, meaning, some time in the future. There is still some work to do to make it possible to run it on arbitrary systems. When that happens, it should simply be a matter of using JuJu to deploy the service, or pulling it from the bzr branch and running it yourself. Until then you will ...

One of my favorite services that no one is listing is BitTorrent Sync. They offer UNLIMITED transfer and storage space; it works just like Dropbox. The ONLY downside is that it is indeed BitTorrent; one computer has to be on with the files. I just let it run on my laptop. It's multiplatform, and its incredibly sharable. Ther's also Dropbox, which I highly ...

I use Google Drive with Insync. I think Insync is the most decent cloud service client for Ubuntu, as you can leave your files where they are, because Insync can follow symlinks.

OneMediaHub (Funambol) is a good one. It's supported by large amounts of different hardware and operating systems. I sync my Android device with Google, Evolution, my Nokia N8, etc. It's really quite good. It's open source as well, so you can run it yourself if you want to. It supports notes, contacts, calendar, todo, pictures, video, music and other ...

You could do what I did: use a service like Otixo and move your data from cloud to cloud if you have any other cloud service.

use firefox, flashgot and uget, or any download manager that you like that is capable of handling large files, pausing and resuming, never use the built in download manager of any browser, it will damage your files

This is very easy to do from Ubuntu Software Center Open software center and click on 'File' menu. And then, click the option 'Sync Between Computers...' After you click that, a sidebar would appear on the left side. It will list software in the local computer and the list will be uploaded in the Ubuntu One cloud. See the Last sync at the bottom ...

Try this: DEST_DIR="/home/user/Ubuntu One/backup" tar -vczpf "${DEST_DIR}/${FNAME}-${TIMESTAMP}.tar.gz" ${SRC_DIR} >> ${LOG} The backslash does not escape inside doublequotes. There is no need to escape space bar inside doublequotes however.

Found an some older posts which say that it's at Ubuntu's side (maybe some maintenance). So just try again in a few moments.

Ubuntu One does not itself have an indicator. It integrates with the system sync indicator in Ubuntu. To have Dropbox in there as well, Dropbox itself needs to also be changed to integrate with this indicator, rather than provide their own. You should report this as a bug against Dropbox upstream, for not integrating with the indicator.
