How to remove ubuntuone syncdaemon from Ubuntu 10.04

Hello Experts.

I am running Ubuntu 10.04, but somehow it happened that ubuntuone-syncdaemon sneaked into my system and always running and takes 14Meg memory.

Is it safe to erase it and how to do this?
The workstation I am running is used for calculation-intensive solver at http://landkey.net/gio/gio/play
and every Meg is counted.

A side question: at least is it safe to reduce priority of this process to minimum?

Thank you.

When you are not using the sync functionality, you should be able to disable it like this:

Go to System > Preferences > Startup Applications, then untick UbuntuOne
