    Question How do I upload my Windows files to the cloud?

    I just installed Ubuntu One on Windows and so far it seems that all I get access to are the Ubuntu files that have been synced when I use Ubuntu. This seems really pointless, since I can just get those files from one.ubuntu.com when I need them. When I tried telling the program that I wanted to sync one of my Windows folders (like My Documents, for example) it tells me that it isn't valid.

    "Please choose a folder in your 'C:\SPB_Data' directory, and not overlapping with any existing folder."

    (The directory SPB_Data is where the Ubuntu files get downloaded to from the cloud.)

    Any ideas?

    Same question here - which is how I ended up in this thread via a search.

    Got a feeling it's going to mean ending up making windows symlinks or junctions via mklink as you have to with certain, ahem, other cloud services

    If anyone knows a better or easier way, or I find one, I'll post back here.

    I just installed Ubuntu One on my windows box so that I could sync some files with my Ubuntu machine, and I'm getting the same error. I don't see why it lets you browse to other folders if you can only sync stuff in "C:\SPB_Data"

    Does anyone have some solution?
