So, I pretty much exclusively use Ubuntu One for Deja-Dup. I have 3 computers hooked into this system, but one of them I don't use anymore. And now my 5GB of storage has been filled up. I can't afford to buy more right now. I tried unlinking the deja-dup/cr-48 folder, (yes, that unused computer is a Cr-48) but that didn't free up any storage. How do I free up storage so that I can keep making backups?


1) Go to https://one.ubuntu.com/
2) Login
3) Go to Files and Folders
4) Look for ~/dejadup/Cr-48
5) Delete this folder.

This is how it looks like:

And you will have to delete the files (just stop syncing will not free up space):

  • Again, tried that. Clicked "Stop syncing this folder". No space was freed up, and now I can't get at the files. – MowDownJoe Apr 22 '12 at 20:44
  • You should gain space when you delete something. – desgua Apr 22 '12 at 20:49
  • Nope. I clicked this, and no space was freed up. At all. – MowDownJoe Apr 23 '12 at 1:43
  • That is the problem MowDownJoe, you really need to delete it. Just stop syncing will not free up space: i.stack.imgur.com/iHRQB.jpg – desgua Apr 23 '12 at 1:49

    The "Stop syncing this folder" button is used to delete a synced folder in the cloud, so should update the quota (it isn't called delete, because it won't cause synchronised copies of the folder on your local system from being deleted). If it hasn't, I suggest filing a support request at one.ubuntu.com/help/contact – James Henstridge Apr 23 '12 at 2:05
