Can Ubuntu One sync from partitions other than /home?

Asked by Callum Macdonald on 2012-12-03

Can I have Ubuntu One sync a folder that is on a different partition than /home?

When I right click on a folder outside the /home partition, all the Ubuntu One submenu options are greyed out. Do I need to engage in some fancy symlinking to get it to work maybe?

Hi, it's not currently possible to sync folders outside your home folder, I apologize.

Is there a workaround with a symlink?

Thanks to all the help from everyone this is now solved.

Everyone? One person replied. And no, the question is not answered. My original question asked about symlinking, as did my follow up, to which I have not yet received an answer...

Turns out, no, symlinks don't work (I just tested) but there is a bind mount option which apparently achieves the desired result, as described here:
