I use ubuntu one on ubuntu 11.10.

It seems that files that already exist in a folder that I synchronize are not taken in account, and are not uploaded in the cloud. But, once my folder is synchronized, if I create a file in this folder, it will be correctly uploaded. Is there a reason to this ?


This is a known bug for ubuntu-one. A fix is committed but did not make it to 11.10. It will be fixed in 12.04.

Possible workarounds are restarting the ubuntu-one synch daemon from Ubuntu One preferences, or issuing the command

u1sdtool -q; killall ubuntuone-login; u1sdtool -c

A system reboot will also force the files to be synchronized. A final alternative is to move the contents elsewhere, add folder to sychronization and then move the contents back in.
