comment Why does Nautilus slow down every time I delete file?
@ph0t0nix, I'm not sure what you mean by filesystem, but ext4 maybe? I don't know what LVM or MDADM are. It's not an SSD. I haven't tried Unity yet, but I suppose I could give that a try sometimes when I don't have to use the computer for work.

comment Is Xubuntu really faster than Ubuntu?
This is perfectly accurate and technically correct, and provides no information that would help in any decision making. Reminds me of that old Microsoft joke.

comment How do I limit the size of my Dropbox directory?
Thank you for the response, but this does not address the issue in my question in any way that I can see. If I didn't want to sync something, I could just leave it out of my Dropbox folder entirely. What I need is a failsafe to prevent accidental overload.
