Syncing Files

Click the File Manager icon from the Launcher. An Ubuntu One has been created for you in your /home directory. Place any file or folder that you want to store in your Ubuntu One cloud storage into this folder and it will automatically be synchronized between your device, the cloud, and from there any other devices you have connected to your Ubuntu One account.

From any other location in File Manager, you can right click on a file or folder to reveal a pop up menu. Hover over Ubuntu One in this menu to reveal a sub-menu that will allow you to share, synchronize, publish and more using Ubuntu One. If you want to stop synchronizing a shared file, right click and select Stop synchronizing on Ubuntu One.

You can also upload, access, and manage your files from the web interface (Figure 11-3).
