I am a new user moving from Dropbox. The gripe I have with Dropbox is that it takes the shared folders size into account for your disk quota. Is it the same with Ubuntu One?

What is the question? – RolandiXor Mar 23 '12 at 14:50

No, shared folders from other users do not affect your own usage quota. However, if you give someone else write access to a share you offer to them, they can put files in it, which will affect your quota (as you own the share).
