I made a shortcut to my home folder by dragging and dropping it to the panel.

Is there a way that I can drag and drop files to that applet in order to save the file in the folder location?

What I really want is to make a shortcut to one of my Ubuntu One folders, that when I drag and drop a file, selected text or url to that applet, it saved the dropped 'element' in the folder for synchronization purposes.

If you are still using ubuntu, I hope you are using 11.04 with Unity because there is a launcher with this capability!

Also, Ubuntu One just upgraded the free storage to 5Gb! – Gruzzles Jul 29 '11 at 14:56
