Would you place your personal information on an open source social network (eg. Diaspora?). That's an interesting one. I don't really think it would make much difference to me if my bank used open source software or not. The proprietary platforms are getting breached all the time anyway. Steam just got hit the other day.

I have used it, but it was constantly uploading/downloading and hogging my bandwidth. Dropbox just works better for me. Maybe its the fact that I just use it for a lot of little files, instead of less, larger files

did you ever investigate why it was doing this?

In the course of testing of both services, they would both connect periodically and perform a "sync" operation, but nothing was uploaded or downloaded. the only time they would is something was added to the "monitored" folders on the host machine, or something appeared on the remote folder, that wasn't uploaded by the host machine (as i tested this feature from several computers, i would sync files and folders from other machines, to see if they would effortlessly download to the machines connected. which they did btw).

Maybe there was a problem with the configuration you were using, or the folders being monitored, had another program that altered the files inside them (like autosaves on word doc's) that was changing the time stamps, which does force a sync to the remote. But both services from my test were virtually identical in how they operated, so I can't really comment on your issue with ubuntu one, without more information.

Is it possible to "properly" sync a folder that someone shares with you? Someone shared a folder with me (we're looking at syncing a small project so that we don't need to email backups to each other tongue.gif) but while it will sync anything that is uploaded via the web interface to me, it won't then sync files/directories that I add to the local copy. Without that I don't see much use for the sharing...

In the ubuntu one control panel, is the folder on the local machine, set to sync?

 

open up ubuntu one settings, go to cloud folders, and find the folder that you want to sync, make sure "Sync Locally" is checked, should take care of the problem.

I'm curious what others think of this service, as I'm thinking of buying their premium service for $40 a year. There are more out there, what do you guys think of these other services, or how they compare to Ubuntu One?

Pointless.

It's nothing a croned rsync job couldn't do for free. (which is what I currently do)

Yes that is what I do to back up to my in house file/storage server, but I would like a remote backup, Ubuntu One offered that service virtually painlessly and at a low cost...so how is it pointless?

I was talking about rsyncing to a remote server. tongue.gif

I guess this could have it's uses for the less technical (which, to be fair, is Ubuntu's target audience). However for me, it's completely pointless.

and if I may ask, where do you purchase/leech your server space from? I checked many solutions to remote backup, Ubuntu One and DropBox were  the cheapest by far. I also use the android app for Ubuntu One to transfer documents/pictures/files from there as well on the go, If I forgot to load them onto the SD card before leaving the house.

 

Yes most might choose this service cause of the lacking in technical expertise to do it, I chose it cause of its convenience :).
