I signed up for Ubuntu One, it says that I will get 5GB free storage space, but on my PC the Ubuntu One folder is only 728Mb.

What is happening here?

Where are you getting this free space number from? Might this be the amount of free space on your local disk instead? –  James Henstridge Apr 3 '12 at 10:45
    
Alternately, are you seeing the total consumed space in the folder? –  Adrian Apr 3 '12 at 18:02
    
Can you give us a screenshot? –  Anwar Shah Aug 5 '12 at 5:54

Ubuntu One stores files on your disk, and does not operate as a networked drive. The "free space" reading you see in the file manager is the amount of free space available for the disk partition on which that directory exists. Your $HOME and $HOME/Ubuntu One folders should both show the same amount of space available, when looking in the file manager.
