    Lightbulb help welcomed using ubuntu one to backup encryptfs home directory

    my goal is to use ubuntu one to backup the entire home directory in encrypted form. i have two user accounts and i use encrypted home directory one is a privileged user and the other account is unprivileged (the one thst i am backing up) so when i log into the privileged account the other users home directory will be contained in one encrypted file. so when i log in to the privileged account how would i have to set permissions to do this, and how would i restore the file?

    admin user would need to be able to read and write users encryptfs file

    admin user would have to be able to inject encryptfs key into user account

    Currently they are working on syncing user designated folders. Currently you are limited to the $HOME/UbuntuOne folder. Here is the bug report on this issue if you wish to track its progress.
